About the Project

Know Your Place is a digital heritage mapping resource to help you to explore your neighbourhood online through historic maps, collections and linked information.

Know Your Place provides unprecedented online access to a range of historic data, but more importantly provides a place where users can add information about your local area, building a rich and diverse community map of local heritage for everyone. Its free to use and anyone can add to the map.

Know Your Place – West of England was a project which ran from June 2015 to July 2017 to expand coverage from Bristol to the six surrounding counties of Bath & North East Somerset, Gloucestershire, North Somerset,  Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Know Your Place now spans seven counties and 4689 square miles, with other counties around the UK interested in putting their areas on the map in future. Watch our short film to find out more.

Follow this link http://www.kypwest.org.uk/  to the home page and click on Wiltshire. This will centre you on Trowbridge and you can drag the map across to Keevil or any other village you may be interested in. You can compare the various maps through time by dragging the top map across. Keevil compares the current Ordinance Survey map with an early Tithe Map.
