Terms and Conditions

By accessing this site, you signify your agreement with and understanding of the following terms of use:

  • This website provides information from the Lincolnshire Historic Environment Record (LHER), but does not contain the full amount of information held in the LHER. It will not be sufficient on its own to inform the planning process, and commercial contractors should contact the LHER directly to obtain the full data for an area. Members of the public, students and other private researchers can consult the full LHER free of charge, while a charge will be applied for commercial or profit-making searches.
  • Copyright is reserved by Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) and its content providers on all data held within the LHER, unless otherwise indicated. The information may be freely used for research but the source must be acknowledged in any report, and it is the user’s responsibility to ensure that copyright law is not breached.
  • Reproduction of any material from the LHER in published form requires written permission from LCC. Data may not be traded, lent, sold or re-sold, hired out or otherwise circulated without our prior written consent.
  • Where Lincolnshire County Council does not own copyright of the material or imagery, permission to reproduce the material should be sought from the copyright owner.
  • The information in the LHER database has been compiled over many years using a variety of sources. Our records are intended to be as accurate as possible, but they should not be considered definitive and consulting the original source material is always recommended.
  • Every effort is made to keep the LHER up-to-date and comprehensive, and it is being added to every day. Please be aware that information regarding existing or newly discovered archaeological sites might not yet have been added, and that future work will undoubtedly result in additional records being created.
  • The accuracy of any particular data cannot be guaranteed, but comments and contributions are welcome.
  • LHER data shown on this website's mapping is for illustrative purposes only and does not necessarily represent an accurate or complete account of archaeological sites or historic features.
  • Definitive information relating to designated heritage assets, including Listed Buildings, Scheduled Monuments, and Registered Parks and Gardens is derived from data supplied by Historic England and is subject to Crown copyright. All designated datasets can be downloaded from Historic England's website.
  • Links from this site to other sites are provided for your information and convenience only, and no responsibility or liability can be accepted for the content, accuracy or any other aspect of these sites. The provision of a link does not imply an endorsement of any kind by LCC.
