    Explore Maps workshop at The Hive

    • 2nd March 2015

    All good adventures begin with a map, or so goes the saying. Certainly lots of research here has been fuelled by maps and plans. As visual documents they draw you in, and contain lots of valuable information. For instance the other week Rob, our Community Archaeologist, came across the fields Near Piesland and Big Piesland on the Upton Warren Tithe Map. Who wouldn’t want to live there?

    Our Explore Maps workshop is returning to The Hive on Monday 16th March. The workshop will cover the wide variety of maps we hold, such as Ordnance Survey, Tithe, Enclosure, town plans, Goad, footpath and manuscript maps. You may already be familiar with some of these but our workshops often throw up new sources and maps, which people have not come across before; one example is the 1910 Land Valuation maps, sometimes referred to as ‘New Domesday’. There will be examples of original maps out on display, which participants of our workshops always enjoy looking at. We will also look at how to search the catalogues and indexes so you can find the maps that could help you.

    The workshop runs from 10am to 3pm, with a break in the middle, and costs £14. To book please email explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk or phone 01905 766352.
