Historic England. "Details from listed building database ({{{num}}})". National Heritage List for England. 

Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to provide a link to the Historic England — National Heritage List for England database (http://www.historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/) for a specified listed building or object in England.

For listed buildings, the database records all those in England and is updated as changes to entries are made and new listings are added. The similar Images of England (IoE) list records a snapshot of those listed at the turn of the millennium and provides a photograph, but uses a different index number and is not updated with list changes since it was created.

The database also contains the following registered historic locations or sites in England:

  • Historic Parks and Gardens
  • Scheduled monuments
  • Protected wrecks
  • Historic battlefields
  • World Heritage sites

Usage[edit]

Required parameter[edit]

  • num: the List Entry Number from the database (not the same as the IoE Number used by Images of England).

Optional parameters[edit]

Additional information for the title:

  • desc: Additional text description such as the name of the building or site. Useful if there are several listed objects in an article. If this parameter is not used default text "Details from listed building database" will be displayed instead.
  • grade: To identify the grade of a listed building. Enter as II, II* or I. Only appears if desc is also used.
  • author: defaults to "Historic England" but can be changed to another name if desired.
  • authorlink: defaults to "Historic England" but is not set by default if author is set to something other than English Heritage.
  • date: The date provided by Historic England.
  • origdate: The date information was first provided by Historic England.
  • accessdate: The date a Wikipedia editor retrieved information from the Historic England List database.
  • mode: Defaults to cs1; if set to cs2 provides consistency with Citation style 2, as produced by {{Citation}}.
  • ps: Using |ps=none removes the final period; suppressing the default final period (full stop) ensures consistency with Citation style 2, as produced by {{Citation}}.
  • fewer-links: Use |fewer-links=y to remove repeated links where the template is used more than once in an article.
  • ref: defaults to author (Historic England) and the Historic England List Number, but can be reset to any value.
  • short: Use |short=y with num produces an external link with just the list number shown. |short=y suppresses the display of other parameters.

Examples[edit]

{{English Heritage List entry |num=1188692}} displays as:

Historic England. "Details from listed building database (1188692)". National Heritage List for England. 

{{English Heritage List entry |num=1188692|short=y }} displays as:

1188692

{{English Heritage List entry |num=1188692 |desc=Southgate Underground station}} displays as:

Historic England. "Southgate Underground station (1188692)". National Heritage List for England. 

{{English Heritage List entry |num=1188692 |desc=Southgate Underground station |grade=II* |accessdate=2 April 2015}} displays as:

Historic England. "Southgate Underground station  (Grade II*) (1188692)". National Heritage List for England. Retrieved 2 April 2015. 

{{English Heritage List entry |num=1162800|desc=Church of St Michael and All Angels, Ashton-under-Lyne|accessdate=2 April 2015|mode=cs2|ps=none}} displays as:

Historic England, "Church of St Michael and All Angels, Ashton-under-Lyne (1162800)", National Heritage List for England, retrieved 2 April 2015 

If a short citation is required (not to be confused with |short=) and one of the {{harv}} templates or {{sfn}} is used then {{harv|English Heritage|English Heritage List Number}} will link the short reference to the long one. For example, {{harv|English Heritage|1162800}} produces (English Heritage 1162800) that links to the "Church of St Michael and All Angels" example above. This is different from the standard use of the {{harv}} that links using the parameters "author" and "date" or "year".

Some articles (e.g. Kingston upon Hull) have multiple entries. "fewer-links=y" can be used to remove the repeated internal links from second and later instances of the template:
{{English Heritage List entry |num = 1001519 |desc = East Park, Hull}}
{{English Heritage List entry |num = 1001520 |desc = Pearson Park |fewer-links=y}} displays as:

Historic England. "East Park, Hull (1001519)". National Heritage List for England. 
Historic England. "Pearson Park (1001520)". National Heritage List for England.
