The Shropshire Historic Environment Record (HER), formerly the Shropshire Sites and Monuments Record, aspires to be a record of all the archaeological sites, finds and features, and historic buildings, structures and landscapes in the county. Monument Records (core records of prehistoric/historic sites, finds, buildings and structures) are uniquely identified by a Primary Reference Number (PRN)[1].

Severn Valley Railway

The HER appears less detailed than the equivalent Wyre Forest District Council Local Heritage List. The Severn Valley Railway itself is listed as a Historic Monument and includes a number of related Monument records. The following items were identified in March 2020 (listed broadly south to north):
