Place Names Map

Came across this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to post it, and just been reminded of it. 

As we all start our summer travels, we will no doubt visit places that are new to use, as well as those which we visit regularly because they make us feel secure. The Key to English Place Names is curated by the University of Nottingham, and provides a meaning for place names.
Made by the Institute for Name Studies.

The names of villages and towns frequently refer to particular people(s), social and administrative activities, landscape, birds and animals, crops and vegetation, and most of them are well over a thousand years old. In other words, they can tell us something important about the history of those places, and how they were perceived, which would otherwise be unknown.
