Have you explored your school and local area yet using the 1890s and 1950s historic mapping in Digimap for Schools? If you haven't and would like to find out how to view the maps and find out more about these beautiful maps, join a Digimap for Schools webinar next week.
These wonderful maps are very valuable for looking at change over time of areas across Great Britain. The 1890s mapping shows the country at the height of the extensive rail network, supporting industry and urban growth. 1950s mapping is excellent for showing the growth of the road network, urban areas and the landscape before new towns were established.
Webinars are free to attend, simply book your place via the link on the Digimap for Schools Blog, and then join in on Wednesday 2nd Dec at 4:30pm from the comfort of your own desk.
If you can't make the webinar, a recording will be made available on the Digimap for Schools YouTube channel afterwards.
