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.
  • author-link: Defaults to "Historic England" but is not set by default if author is set to something other than Historic England.
  • date: The date provided by Historic England. Can be a full or partial date.
  • year: The year provided by Historic England. Use of |date= is recommended; see Template:Cite web/doc#Date for proper usage.
  • orig-date: The date information was first provided by Historic England. Only appears if |date= or |year= is also used.
  • access-date: The date a Wikipedia editor retrieved information from the Historic England List database.
  • mode: Defaults to |mode=cs1; set to |mode=cs2 to provide consistency with Citation style 2, as produced by {{Citation}}.
  • postscript: Controls the closing punctuation for the citation. Defaults to a period (.); for no terminating punctuation set to |postscript=none, however using |mode=cs2 does this automatically.
  • fewer-links: Use |fewer-links=yes 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=yes with |num= to produce an external link with just the list number shown. |short=yes suppresses the display of other parameters.

Examples[edit]

{{National Heritage List for England |num=1188692}} displays as:

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

{{National Heritage List for England |num=1188692|short=yes }} displays as:

1188692

{{National Heritage List for England |num=1188692 |desc=Southgate Underground station}} displays as:

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

{{National Heritage List for England |num=1188692 |desc=Southgate Underground station |grade=II* |access-date=9 February 2016}} displays as:

Historic England. "Southgate Underground station  (Grade II*) (1188692)". National Heritage List for England. Retrieved 9 February 2016. 

{{National Heritage List for England |num=1162800 |desc=Church of St Michael and All Angels, Ashton-under-Lyne |access-date=9 February 2016 |mode=cs2}} displays as:

Historic England, "Church of St Michael and All Angels, Ashton-under-Lyne (1162800)", National Heritage List for England, retrieved 9 February 2016 

If a short citation is required (not to be confused with |short=) and one of the {{harv}} templates or {{sfn}} is used then {{harv|Historic England|Historic England List Entry Number}} will link the short reference to the long one. For example, {{harv|Historic England|1162800}} produces (Historic England 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=yes can be used to remove the repeated internal links from second and later instances of the template:
{{National Heritage List for England |num=1001519 |desc=East Park, Hull}}
{{National Heritage List for England |num=1001520 |desc=Pearson Park |fewer-links=yes}} displays as:

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