More than 300,000 photographs of the country's greatest architectural treasures have been collected together in a digital Domesday Book.
The project, organised by English Heritage, has taken seven years to complete and includes photographs of Eaton Bray, Leighton Buzzard, Woburn, Linslade, Eggington and probably many more local places that I did not have time to find on the very large website www.imagesofengland.org.uk.
On it you will find almost every building and monument in the country that has been listed as being of architectural and historical importance.
By using the search facility visitors to the site are able to view images of 420 castles, 7,484 parish churches, 2,146 telephone boxes, 2,700 milestones, 55 garden sheds, eight waterfalls, 124,190 Victorian listed buildings, 82,250 Tudor listed buildings and 10,195 post 1901 listed buildings.
There are numerous other items such as 6,283 bridges, 73 bandstands and one racing pigeon loft.
Using the site will enable you to look up all the buildings of a particular architect, and if you are going away you can look up all the listed buildings in a particular area.
