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.

Otley Bridge Otley West Yorkshire

It is one of the oldest bridges in England, having been constructed in 1288 and widened in 1775 (although the site has been used as a crossing point since pre-Roman times.) The stone for the bridge was almost certainly quarried on Otley Chevin as it is made from a local [...]

Earthwork in Ewedown Copse Hatford Oxfordshire

Agree with above comment by Andrew Foley. The footpath marked on OS going south from the main path is completely unidentifiable on the ground other than a ramp over the small stream.

Mawgan Porth Dark Age settlement Mawgan-in-Pydar Cornwall

The remaining low walls of two medieval courtyard houses are visible. The houses each consist of a long-house with added rooms around a courtyard. The presence of bar-lug pottery and a coin dating to 991-997AD imply an early date. A further courtyard house and cemetery have been covered over since [...]

Medieval Iron Working Remains at Stanley Monastic Grange Dale Abbey Derbyshire

The grid reference is given as SE 425 425,this has the wrong prefix letters. The numeric reference is correct. The grid reference should be SK 425 406.
