Diamond content Colour Tithe Maps added to Map Explorer™
6th January 2020

MAJOR NEW RELEASE:

Our latest innovation to help you find an ancestor's property and watch the landscape change over time has now been enhanced by the addition of georeferenced Colour Tithe Maps. So now you can view exactly where your ancestor lived or worked on a modern day map. We're also releasing colour tithe maps for Cumberland - you can search these as normal or browse them on Map Explorer™.

The colour maps now available on MapExplorer™ cover the counties of Warwickshire, Rutland, Huntingdonshire, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex, Northumberland, Surrey, Westmorland, York City, North and East Ridings of Yorkshire along with the newly launched Cumberland.

Joining the georeferenced Lloyd George Data Layer, Headstones and War Memorials, the Colour Tithe Maps are a significant addition to the ever-expanding Map Explorer™. Our Diamond subscribers have access to all layers within Map Explorer™.

To find out more about the release, you can read Nick Thorne's article Exploring the Island at Twickenham.
