Monumental History of England

The Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England published 41 volumes in an effort to inventory noteworthy structures in England and preserve them for posterity. The volumes are arranged by county and give both descriptions and sketches of the various monuments, ranging from statuary to churches. Each town profiled has their monuments grouped as “prehistoric” or “secular” or “ecclesiastical” along with their condition.
