Caveat for the use of the Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record (ENPHER)
The information contained in the ENPHER has been produced from various sources, a substantial part being compiled by both Devon and Somerset County Councils before being transferred to Exmoor National Park Authority in 2009. The Authority acknowledges the previous work carried out by both County Councils in establishing and maintaining the Historic Environment Record for the National Park.
Users of the HER website should be aware that there is a backlog of information that has not yet been entered into the ENPHER and that the information on the HER website may be out of date compared to that held at Exmoor National Park Authority. 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 must be obtained directly from the ENPHER and not via the website. This service is provided free of charge and can be requested by using our online contact us form, by e-mailing HER@exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk or by calling 01398 322273. We aim to update our information on the website about every 6 months.
Information held within the ENPHER is subject to Intellectual Property Rights. Users will need to obtain consent from authors and ENPHER 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 Exmoor National Park Authority.
The inclusion of a site or monument within the ENPHER cannot be taken to mean or imply that there is public right of access, or that access permission will be granted upon request.
