Caveat for the use of the Suffolk Historic Environment Record (SHER)
The information contained in the SHER has been produced from various sources.
Users of the HER website should be aware that there is a backlog of information that has not yet been entered into the SHER and that the information on the HER website may be out-of-date compared to that held at Suffolk County Council. As the information was compiled from a number of sources, users may find that information on a particular site is split between several records, or duplicated on more than one record, and that some records are incomplete and may not include designation status. We are undertaking a programme of record checking and enhancement to address these issues.
For the reasons given above, information for planning related studies/enquiries should be obtained directly from the SHER and not via the website. We aim to update our information on the website about every 6 months.
Information held within the SHER is subject to Intellectual Property Rights. Users will need to obtain consent from authors and SHER to reproduce any of the information.
Definitive information on designated sites, including Scheduled Monuments, Listed Buildings and Registered Parks and Gardens should be obtained from English Heritage. Definitive information on Conservation Areas should be obtained from the relevant district councils.
The inclusion of a site or monument within the SHER cannot be taken to mean or imply that there is public right of access, or that access permission will be granted upon request.
