The Know Your Place website is up and running for Bristol, Wiltshire, South Glos. BANES, and imminently N. Somerset. By opening the site you can select various maps and then overlay them to see the changes over time.
i.e, tithe maps overlaid by the 1st Issue of OS. You will find points of interest already imbedded. Such as historical postcards etc. You can zoom in to pick up individual houses if loaded. The idea is that this facility is available for anyone to add to. Groups or individuals can put on a few facts or photos and then direct viewers to a hyperlink for more information.
The running of this service will be handed over to the local museums soon to ensure it continues. Andy Stanley
