Title: Interesting map site
Post by: sasquartch on January 07, 2016, 02:15:02 pm
Came across this map site recently

Great feature where you can compare old and new side-by-side.

There has been a huge amount of development in the last 130 years !

Good find, and thanks for sharing. I wonder what it would have looked like had The Town and Country Planning Act of 1947 (which allowed local authorities to include green belt proposals in their development plans) not been passed.
