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, collections 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.

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.
