Find out how to access the Industrial Collections

To help those of you interested in industrial heritage there’s a new guide on the website called Researching the archive collections of English Heritage Industrial Heritage. This explains which archive collections include material relating to industrial sites and processes.

The guide describes what each collection contains (e.g. reports, photographs, plans) and tells you which collections are catalogued. So, for example, if you’re researching coal-mining you’ll be able to see which collections include relevant material. If the collection has been catalogued you can use the English Heritage Archives website to find out what items it contains (such as the image shown here) and how to get access to them.

If a relevant collection is uncatalogued you’ll find information on how to contact us for more details.

The guide is available on the Downloads page.
