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.

Beattock Hill, fort Dumfries and Galloway Dumfries and Galloway

I find this a fascinating site. The location provides great views all around the Moffat hills and down Annandale. The shape of the fort is well defined and despite centuries of agriculture and even the use of the hills for military training in WW2,it remains a hillfort. Frustratingly I cannot [...]

Fosterdown or Pilgrim Fort: a London Mobilisation Centre Caterham Valley Surrey

I remember having a wonderful time at Pilgrims Fort. There's even a song that comes to mind. Although I went to Rockmount Primary in Norwood, I seem to think the trip was related to my time in the Brownies in Norwood, rather than to do with school.I guess I went [...]

Bowl Barrow in Conyfield Wood, 570m Nne of Messing Park Farm Messing-cum-Inworth Essex

Stumbled across this today on a walk around Conyfield Woods. A lovely area currently bedecked in bluebells. I had to research when I got home as there was no signage stating what I was looking at. Clearly of interest as it was fenced off. The fence and a stile to access [...]
