Know Your Place

Have you ever wished you could travel back in time and discover how your area has changed over the years? Know Your Place features extraordinary images from archives, museums and heritage collections across South Gloucestershire to give an unique insight into the history of the places where we live, work and visit every day.

Know Your Place – West of England, the digital mapping project to share your neighbourhood’s heritage online through old maps, historic images and heritage data.
