Welcome to the South Yorkshire Local Heritage List

The places we live and work in have been subject to all kinds of changes throughout their histories, which is displayed in the landscapes and townscapes around us. Whether it's remains of a prehistoric burial mound, an 18th century iron works or a Second World War memorial, there are remnants of the past everywhere, although they are not always well known or sometimes even visible. The Local Heritage List reflects the importance of these places and structures to communities’ local historic environment and illustrates their significance to the wider world.

The South Yorkshire Local Heritage List identifies heritage assets that are valued as contributing to the distinctiveness and history of South Yorkshire but that are not protected by statutory national designations. To view nationally listed heritage assets, see the National Heritage List for England (NHLE) by clicking here. Inclusion on the Local Heritage List will enable the more local significance of a building, place or site to be taken into account in planning applications that affect it or its setting.

From here you can view the existing list, see the assessment criteria, nominate candidates and read our latest blog. So why not have a look around your local area and see what you could nominate!
