Rainbow-coloured band and two compass pointersHistoric England is the public body that looks after England’s historic environment. We champion and protect historic places, helping people understand, value and care for them. In our South West office in Bristol we are responsible for giving advice on planning decisions, listing and grant applications for Heritage at Risk for the heritage in the entire south west.

Logo consisting of green red and blue wavy lines with text "Historic England"As part of our national championing of heritage we launched our Pride of Place campaign which aims to uncover and highlight places of LGBTQ heritage across England, ranging from the frontiers of Roman Britain to the gay pubs and clubs that remain important in our lives today.

It also included the creation of an interactive crowd-sourced map that identifies places that are relevant to LGBTQ heritage and history. Members of the public can contribute to this map. In the Bristol office we want to use this campaign to engage more with our local LGBT community.

Historic England will be showcasing Pride of Place at the LGBT History Day at Bristol’s M Shed Museum, and explaining how you can help contribute to this national resource.
