Places in History is an ongoing project. It uses placemarks in Google Maps to identify the exact position of a building, street or other feature, with a satellite view of the location. The maps link to pages in HistoryWorld for historical details, images and timelines.


Places in History


Places in History for Richmond-upon-Thames is a pilot scheme towards a project that we hope to make freely available throuhout the United Kingdom. The historical information and map for each local area begins with a lead contributor, who then is able to invite others to add material. If you would like to be involved, in contributing place-related information or images on behalf of any local history society, please contact us.
