Ancient Monuments

This site aims to list every scheduled monument in the British Isles. Each monument page includes the geographic location of the monument and, where possible, Google and OS maps of the location. Where available, the official monument description is also shown.

As well as the official data, we also have user-contributed notes and photos. Over time, this is expected to build to a comprehensive user-contributed database of Britian's ancient monuments.

Earth circle S of Turner's Farm barn Litton Cheney Dorset
