Welcome to Historic England

Today, 1st April 2015, English Heritage has split into two separate parts:-  a charity that looks after the collections of houses, abbeys, castles and their contents;  and Historic England that champions the nation’s wider heritage, running the listing system, dealing with planning matters and giving grants.

We look forward to Historic England’s working with the town of Waltham Abbey to preserve the Abbey Gateway and the monastic remains.   The whole Abbey site is an ancient monument.
