English Heritage exists to protect and promote England’s spectacular historic environment and ensure that its past is researched and understood. By employing some of the country’s best architects, archaeologists and historians, they aim to help people understand and appreciate why the historic buildings and landscapes around them matter.

English Heritage has over 400 sites in its care which are open to the public, including historic buildings, monuments, battlefields, parks and gardens and archaeological remains. In addition, English Heritage has an advisory role to the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport in the listing of buildings in England.

Through the partnership, Little Greene have access to the extensive English Heritage wallpaper archive, now housed at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire. The result is several stunning wallpaper collections based on original documents discovered during the protection and restorations of some of England’s finest historic properties.

Stunning flocks, sophisticated prints and use of vivid colours and metallic finishes bring the archive to life for the 21st Century, whilst the complementary Little Greene palette allow you to create a beautiful cohesive result.

A contribution from the sale of every roll of wallpaper goes towards English Heritage’s work in preserving our ancient buildings and landscapes for future generations.
