SHINE (the Selected Heritage Inventory for Natural England) is a single, nationally consistent dataset of undesignated historic environment features from across England that could benefit from management within Environmental Stewardship, an agri-environment scheme that is administered by Natural England on behalf of Defra. Data about suitable sites is created by local authority Historic Environment Records (HERs) and fed into the national SHINE dataset.
This dataset (which also appears on the Environmental Information Maps provided with Environmental Stewardship application packs) shows applicants where selected historic environment features can be found on their holding. We hope that the SHINE dataset will result in more monuments being cared for and entered into beneficial management by farmers and land managers entering into Environmental Stewardship agreements.
This website is designed for use by farmers, land agents, Environmental Stewardship applicants, local authority HERs and SHINE partners.
Sarah Poppy is currently the SHINE Coordinator. She can be contacted here to answer any enquiries regarding the SHINE dataset.
