Military wall art: Guidelines on its significance, conservation and management

Military wall art appears throughout the United Kingdom, on or within buildings that are or once were in military use. Surviving works include murals, pencil sketches, stencils, instructional drawings, signage and simple graffiti, and incorporate both sanctioned and less official forms of decoration.

Whatever the circumstances of its location, the management needs of wall art are often very specific and will be influenced by various factors, including the nature of the site and the extent and condition of the decoration.

These guidelines from Historic England are intended to address these issues, covering the evaluation of significance, and the determination of conservation and management needs.
