BATTLEFIELDS AND MILITARY HERITAGE DIRECTORY

The British Battlefields directory of British Battlefield and military heritage destinations is designed to allow the visitor to see destinations grouped by Region or historic theme. This is someone staying in or visiting a region can see what else of interest is nearby. It will allow someone seeking places associated with a historic era or theme to plan a visit covering different regions.

Themes

Currently we cover chronological eras. These are broad eras of history from per Norman conquest to the Cold War, and on the Themes page.

We plan to extend this to display heritage by historic personalities, technology (military aircraft and air power) and topical themes.

Regions 

We have divided the country into regions, including lowland and high land Scotland and Northern Ireland. We may extend the coverage into the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and France.   The Regional maps are currently based on Google maps, but we are working on a system allowing for better links to destination.The current regional coverage is on the Regions Page.

Rating System 

British Battlefields is introducing a rating system for the convenience of visitors.One problem with planning visits to battlefields is to know what you can expect to find. Over the next few years we plan to evaluate and rate battlefield and military heritage to make it easy for visitors to plan their visit. We would like to recruit members of the public as well as our members to evaluate military heritage destinations.

The rating codes is described on the Ratings Page    This is new, but based on the symbols used by the Ordnance Survey for tourist information.

Destinations

Currently most of the destinations are simply short paragraphs on each destination under the Theme or Region.  As our membership grows we will have a page for each member. There is  example of a destination page for the battlefield of Barnet.
