'Know Your Place' Mapping Day @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

North Somerset is part of “Know Your Place”, an online mapping and local history project. This is a free digital mapping project which allows users to explore the heritage of their local area through old maps, archive images and linked information. From the coastal communities of Portishead, Clevedon and Weston, further inland to Blagdon and Leigh Woods, you can now discover how North Somerset has been transformed over time.

Heritage officers from North Somerset Council and staff and volunteers from Weston Museum would like to invite you to an open event where you can learn more about how to use Know Your Place, and even add some interesting information yourself!

Drop in anytime between 11am and 3pm to find out more, no need to book for this free entry event.

We will have some computers available for having a go at using Know Your Place at the event, but if you wish to bring along your own laptop, tablet or mobile phone, we can show you how to use the resource.
 
We would also encourage you to bring along photographs or artifacts we can photograph that you would like to upload to the Community Layer.
