Winchester Historic Environment Record

Covid-19 status update: Due to the ongoing situation and related staff working arrangements, access to the Winchester HER is currently restricted. Summary information (Monument data only) is available on the Heritage Gateway and we anticipate that GIS data from the HER can still be provided by pdf and in GIS formats. However full Monument / Events reports are not currently available. If you have an enquiry regarding a particular site or area, we will endeavour to provide more detailed information and access to grey literature. See our website for further updates.
