In 2015 English Heritage separated into two organisations: Historic England, which is the new public body responsible for England's historic environment, and English Heritage, a charity which looks after the national heritage collection of more than 400 historic buildings, monuments and sites across England. Its archive, once known as the National Monuments Record or NMR, is now held by Historic England.

Historic England Archive enables anyone interested in England’s historic buildings and archaeological sites to search free of charge catalogue entries for over a million photographs and documents held by the body. These include photographs of domestic, public and industrial buildings from early photography to the present day; detailed drawings and reports on buildings of interest; and surveys of archaeological sites - Tel 01793 414600

Historic England Library, which is housed with the archive in HE's national centre in Swindon, holds over 60,000 books covering all aspects of the historic environment and is open to the public for reference use - Tel 01793 414632.
