Our exhibition is now touring and available online. Read more on our Exhibition page.


Once your area has been mapped on Know Your Place, it’s just the beginning…

We invite all researchers, volunteers, museums and heritage organisations across the West of England to take up our challenge:


Add 10 records onto Know Your Place in 10 days

and help us build a rich, shared map of OUR local heritage

Adding records is easy, and anyone can do it. Find helpful tips for exploring and contributing to the map on our Explore the Map page.
