Industrial History Online

Recording and Communicating Our Industrial Heritage

Using Industrial History Online

Industrial History Online is free for all to use, we only ask that if you use any of the information or images that you credit IHO as the source.

The aim of IHO is to provide free web access to information about Industrial Heritage Sites. IHO is a fully searchable database, that has been developed by a group of Industrial History Societies, and which aims to provide an on-line repository for members' knowledge, photographs research notes, audio, and sound recording of industrial sites, artefacts and processes. It is hoped that, in time, this will become a comprehensive record of our shared Industrial Heritage and an invaluable resource to everyone researching the development of Industry


You do not need to be have contributed records to IHO to be able to search the database. However we are always keen to hear from researchers or others who have a passion for our shared Industrial Heritage and who would be interested in contributing their own research to the database or who would be willing to help transcribe other data sets.
