Bristol City Council has created a website that enables people to explore their neighbourhoods through historic maps, images and linked information.
‘Know Your Place’ allows wider access to Bristol’s historic maps as well as enabling people to share their own information and images about Bristol.
To enter ‘Know Your Place’ go to maps.bristol.gov.uk/knowyourplace. This version of the site requires the ‘Silverlight’ browser plug-in.
Alternatively you can use this link maps.bristol.gov.uk/knowyourplace/?maptype=js. This link does not require the plug-in, but does not have some of the tools available on the Silverlight version.
If you want to subscribe to ‘Know Your Place’ so that your browser receives a notification when information is updated or maps added, go to the RSS Feed.
