Download a beautiful image each month, directly to your desktop

Local authorities are responsible for managing information about places, for allocating addresses and street names for every property, and so they know where all the interesting, beautiful and quirky places are across England and Wales.

Images are available to download and set as a monthly desktop background image. Each month is available as an image with a calendar, or as a plain image.

Please feel free to download and use them to brighten up your computer and keep track of the days as they speed by.
