Essential maintenance

HES is currently undertaking essential maintenance on our web services. This will limit access to services in the following ways:

 

- Subscription access for HES online services will be unavailable (Scran, NCAP)

- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)

- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)

 

General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.

We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.

For the benefit of readers I would say that Hirwaen is not the usual spelling for this location. Hirwaun is the more common spelling. A local slang pronounciation which was often heard from the 1960.s onwards was "erwin"
