Please help the by contributing to the national list list of historic buildings with photographs and information about listed buildings in the Amwell area.
The list of historic buildings was started in 1882 and is now maintained online by Historic England at www.historicengland.org.uk/listing on behalf of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. However, most entries consist of a bare, official description with no history and no photos. We should be pretty proud as a photo of Lloyd Square appears on the main page for this section of Historic England’s website so there’s a good reason to contribute to this important work.
There are over 400,000 entries to enhance, so Historic England is now opening the list to a crowd-sourcing initiative to add details of the history of the buildings and in particular photographs.
In the area covered by the Amwell Society there are nearly one hundred listings which appear in this supplement.
We would like to make our contribution to the project by providing historical information and photos to add to the list of historic buildings. Please send comments, observations and photographs to committee member, Peter Kornicki who has kindly agreed to co-ordinate our contribution to this project. Peter’s e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Historic England is hoping to receive the following kind of information:
- Photos – new and old
- Information about any historical events that took place in or around the building
- Any detail or social history
- Later changes since a building was Listed
- Information about the architecture or archaeology
Your help will be much appreciated by future generations.
