The marvellous resource that is Landmark’s History Albums is now available online. This makes the detailed research undertaken on each Landmark digitally available to all, an extensive repository for every kind of historian and others to mine.
Ever since Landmark was founded in 1965, every building has had its own History Album, a scholarly but readable account of the site’s history and those who lived there. Each is written by Landmark’s in-house Historian of the day to help Landmarkers get the most out of their stay, and we now make them available to download.
By definition, our buildings are rooted in British history, and we acknowledge that some, therefore, reflect our shameful periods as well as moments of celebration and humanity. We strive to be honest and objective in our presentation of them all, and to reflect these complex and contested histories appropriately in our History Albums and across our wider content.
Although every album has been carefully researched, sources are not generally cited in full given their general readership. If you have any comments or new information to offer, please email [email protected].
Please note that illustrations are reproduced for personal and research use only, and copyright permission should be sought from the owning institution for any onward use. We request that full citation is given for any use of album content, crediting the author and The Landmark Trust.
We have arranged the History Albums in alphabetical order. Click a Landmark to open its History Album – and enjoy!
The albums are hosted by Microsoft Sharepoint. Please note that we do not supply or sell bound or hard copies of the album.
