The National Buildings Record was an independent body set up in 1941 with the aim of collecting plans, drawings, photographs and other records of buildings of national importance that were situated in areas considered under threat of enemy action during the Second World War. Architecture students were frequently employed to carry out survey work and produce measured drawings.
The English section of the NBR was assumed into the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (RCHME) in 1963, while the Scottish National Buildings Record was merged with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) in 1966.
