The County’s Planning Archaeologists use the Historic Environment Record (HER) to give informed advice to County and District planners, developers and archaeological contractors.

This advice can help in reducing the impact of development on archaeology, in drawing up management plans and in site interpretation. The HER is invaluable in ensuring that archaeology is properly considered, monitored and conserved as Surrey develops.

The HER is also a valuable resource for students, local archaeologists, local historians and interested members of the public. Anyone interested in finding out more about an aspect of Surrey’s past will find the HER an invaluable place to start their search.

On this site, you can use the HER for your own research.

Try the Place themes – they have links to lots of the key records for an area, as well as the Times pages which link through to key sites important at various periods in the county’s past.

Easy-to-read summaries have been created for each record, making site records accessible to all.
