Mapping our local history

Interested in local history? Layers of London www.layersoflondon.org is a unique, free, historical and geographical resource for Londoners. It brings together a significant collection of digitised historic maps, photos and other information provided by key partners across London. It’s funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and based at the University of London’s Institute of Historical Research. The project explores London’s development, history and heritage with reference to local areas, streets and neighbourhoods. It’s open to all to contribute to the history of London’s places.
If you are interested in finding out more there’s a free workshop offering training and resources on 28 February 10.00 - 1.00. If you can’t make it Barbara and Mick will report back on the workshop at the ATA history group meeting, also on 28 February at 7.30 in the back room at The Ashburnham Arms.
