The history and evolution of Gobions from 1718 onwards
« on: March 27, 2018, 06:19:10 pm »
We've just added the latest document to our growing local history site. It's a detailed report into the history and development of Gobions, complete with more than 20 maps dating back to 1735. The feature will be slow to load because of the amount of data it's calling in, but it's worth the wait. You can expand all the maps and study the detail.

I've reworked the introduction page to this feature because the 20 embedded maps were slowing download time to almost 10 seconds on high-speed broadband. So now each map has its own page and all are listed with links below the report on the introduction page. This should mean that anyone interested is able to choose the maps to view and get to them quicker. Sorry for the slow download speed of the version I uploaded yesterday.

Great info from these maps but I noticed the 1991 os map on this link does not include shrublands or Woodlands which would date that map pre 1979.

Thank you Brooky P - You are correct, the map cannot be 1991 - we will check the date of the map and amend accordingly.

Thanks Brooky P (and thanks epiphany). I will review the source material and update. It will take me 24 hours to get my hands on the material I uploaded, but once I do I will liaise with epiphany and the rest of the North Mymms History Project team and post in the forum

Still trying to get to the bottom of this and find out the facts before correcting the error.

Does anyone have a printed copy of the last OS 6" (before metrication) map of the area in order to verify dates?
