London Resources

New! Explore map layers that have been stretched and manipulated to fit over the contemporary map of London. The 12 maps range from a Tudor Map of 1520 to a modern satellite map.

Focus on a street, building or area and see how it has changed over time.

Building on a free website developed by the Institute of Historical Research users can contribute stories, memories and histories to create a social history resource about their area.

Not new, but good, from Family Tree magazine, six websites for London genealogy research.

I tried this out last night and found it a little frustrating as I couldn't add everything I wanted to my collection. However, it's still pretty cool!
