Intro to Know Your Place Bristol

Putting Heritage on the Map

How does it work?

The KYPexplore exhibition is part ofthe digital mapping project Know Your Place – West of England.

Know Your Place is the online research tool that is putting your neighbourhood’s heritage online using old maps, historic images and heritage data. Know Your Place is free for everyone to use, and anyone to add to.


Use Know Your Place to:

Pore over historic maps and compare them to see how a place has changed over time.

Watch as historic photos, film and oral histories from local collections are added.

Read archaeological information from the Historic Environment Record.

Put your neighbourhood on the map by sharing your own research.
