Volunteer recorders and project partners conducted fieldwork and documentary research to record sites throughout England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland.

The Home Front Legacy 1914-18 archive features a range of information relating to Home Front sites of the First World War throughout the UK.

Over 5,000 sites were recorded from the launch of the recording app in March 2014 to its close in November 2018, with the data recorded contributing substantially to the understanding of the impact of the First World War on Britain’s landscape.

The archive features records for a wide range of sites within the UK, with everything from Ablutions Blocks to Wrecks represented records are accompanied by images and associated documents.

Home Front Legacy has identified many new sites, helping to update and add to existing local and national records relating to the First World War to enhance our knowledge of the physical legacy of the First World War across the UK.

Please Note: Many of the sites in the database are on private land. The fact that a site appears here does not obviate the need to obtain permission before entering on private land.
