Know Your Place

Welcome to the project website for Know Your Place West of England.

Know Your Place is a digital heritage mapping project to help you to explore your neighbourhood online through historic maps, images and linked information.

The project is underway and this website will adapt and grow as we progress, so please be aware that some content may be under construction at this time.

Tell us where to go

Our next big piece of work is the development of a touring exhibition and programme of events starting this autumn.

We are developing the touring programme now, and need your help to tell us where to go.

We invite you to suggest what local landmarks and community venues could be involved in the exhibition and its related programme of events.

Read more in our Spring project update.
