From Stonehenge to Hadrian's Wall, Dover Castle to Iron Bridge, our sites span some six millennia and are visited by more than 10 million people each year. We are a new charity with big targets and the Development Department at English Heritage works to secure funding from private philanthropists, corporate partners, charitable foundations and statutory grant-making bodies.
