Historic England is calling on the public to nominate the homes and gardens where English history was made for the latest installment of its campaign, ‘Irreplaceable: A History of England in 100 Places’.

This month the campaign is concentrating on the Homes and Gardens category. Ten places will be chosen from a long list by expert judge George Clarke. The places that make the list will feature in a podcast, which will be produced as part of the campaign later in the year.

The year-long campaign, Irreplaceable: A History of England in 100 Places, which is sponsored by Ecclesiastical, is divided into ten categories: Homes and Gardens; Science and Discovery; Music and Literature; Sport; Art, Architecture and Sculpture; Faith and Belief; Power, Protest and Progress; Industry, Trade and Commerce; Travel and Tourism; and Loss and Destruction.
