This excellent website allows you to access historical maps and statistical information about your local area in the 19th and 20th centuries through postcode and placename searches. You also have access to travel writing from as far back as the 1190′s – the Rough Guides of their day! This inlcudes the Giraldus Cambrensis tour through Wales.
You can zoom into the maps for more detail and the Statistical Atlas tab gives you a great overview of life in the UK through the decades under headings like Langauge & Learning, Employment and Social Structure. There are interactive online tutorials under the Learning Resources tab, such as the history of census taking, which help you to get the most from the site. This is a valuable social research tool that gives access to many previously unpublished resources.
