How you can help the Historic Environment Record

We need your help to keep the Surrey Historic Environment Record (HER) up to date. If you have any information relating to the archaeology, landscape or historic buildings in your part of the county, we would like to hear from you.

Any historic landscape features observed or finds made when walking or gardening can improve our knowledge and understanding of Surrey's past, but this will happen only if the relevant information is reported. The Surrey Finds Liaison Officer or your local museum are best placed to help you identify small artefacts. All other discoveries can be reported to the HER via email at; additional information may be provided using a Surrey HER Finds Report Form which is obtained from the HER.

Let us know what you have found and where, and that information can be added to the HER, for the benefit of all who are interested in studying and preserving Surrey's past.

If you have some spare time or are interested in a particular aspect of archaeology or history, you can volunteer to research and add information to the HER. The HER Officer can offer information on current projects if you need some ideas, and welcomes ideas for new projects. Please email to find out more.
