Website of the week

Following my reference to William Cobbett's "Rural Rides" in an earlier post, I have to share with you one of my favourite websites, which I only discovered last week.

Vision of Britain is a most wonderful resource for historical data: maps, census returns, historical documents and so much more, all linked to your home town. It is the website of the Great Britain Historical GIS Project ("GIS" stands for "Geographical Information System").

Be careful, you could spend more time browsing around on here than you can really afford!

Here's the link to the William Cobbett page

Here's the link to the Index
