What is Know Your Place?

Know Your Place is an online mapping resource that allows you to search through historic maps, images and information for the west of England.  Explore it by visiting http://www.kypwest.org.uk

What is the Sharing Heritage project?

Weston Museum, supported by Weston-super-Mare Town Council, is working in partnership with North Somerset Council to enhance Know Your Place North Somerset.  The project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund #nationallotteryfund and the Great Weston Heritage Action Zone.

How can I share my photographs to the Know Your Place website?

If you have an historic image of a North Somerset location that you would like to share, you can bring it to be scanned by a volunteer at Weston Museum on the first Saturday of the month, 11am - 1pm,  until December 2019.

Or you can upload images yourself by navigating to the community layer of http//www.kypwest.org.uk

Your contribution will help us share stories of your local heritage.

How can I volunteer?

We would love to have your help. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator on 01934 621028
