Worcester City Historic Environment Record
What is the Historic Environment Record?
Worcester City Council maintains records of archaeological and historic sites and monuments within the city area in a database and map system known as the Historic Environment Record (HER). The HER is an essential tool for development planning but also an excellent first point of reference for anyone researching the archaeology or history of places in Worcester. It includes an extensive collection of historic maps, reports and photographs. The record can be consulted by the public by appointment.
