Explore Historic Grantham (HER) KS1,2,3

This resource has been designed to guide teachers and children in Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 in learning more about the prehistory and history of Grantham through to the late Medieval period.

Much of the information and the activities in the resource can be used not just for Grantham, but for other places as well.


The Historic Environment Record (HER) is a computerised database and geographical information system which records the historic environment of Lincolnshire from the earliest prehistory to the Cold War. It includes all known archaeology, including below ground as well as standing remains, Scheduled Monuments, historic buildings such as Listed Buildings, historic landscapes for example parks or battlefields, all designated historic sites and buildings and Conservation Areas.

The HER is continually growing and is currently at nearly 30,000! Along with the records, the HER Team also hold aerial photographs, books, reports and journals.

The HER Team can undertake searches of the database for members of the public and professionals, or the records are available to view and search online at Heritage Gateway.

OPEM exhibition at The Collection

28 January - 2 May 2017

Exhibition Opening Times: 10:00am - 4:00pm

OPEM 4 is the fourth biennial open exhibition hosted by The Collection and Usher Gallery, and will showcase the work of local and regional artists who were chosen by a pair of industry experts (writer/curator Elinor Morgan and artist Brian Griffiths) based on the quality and originality of their work. Hundreds of artists from around Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and more entered into the competition, hoping to have their work featured centre-stage at a professional art exhibition.

The winning artists are:

• Reece Straw

• Jake Kent

• Stephanie Douet

• Jake Moore

• Selina Mosinski

• Matthew Chesney

• Ellen Brady

• Colette Griffin

This will be the first time some of these artists have exhibited with a professional institution. By winning the competition these artists will each receive money and supplies to fund the creation of an all-new original piece of work for this particular show. Other prizes include a £3000 purchasing/commissioning prize which has been sponsored by the Heslam Trust, while another artist will receive their own solo exhibition in The Usher Gallery.
