My House Area History
My House History is a wonderfully original and fascinating personalised gift for the person who loves their local area. With historical Ordnance Survey map extracts, this unique made-to-order document presents a geographical history of the land around your home or area of choice.
The OS Mapping is taken from individual surveys of your area which commenced circa 1841 through to the 1960s. After the initial survey, the mapping for every county in England & Wales was further revised between 3 and 5 times during this period, thus your personal Portfolio will contain multiple extracts illustrating those survey editions.
A typical Portfolio contains 7 historical map extracts at two scales (1:2,500 & 1:10,560). In addition to the above historical mapping the Portfolio will also contain a contemporary (circa 2000) full-colour aerial photograph and a complimentary full colour extract taken from the current OS Landranger map base.
My House History personalised Portfolio provides a unique dossier tracing the geographical changes over 150 years surrounding your home, property and local community. It also contains expert advice on how to investigate further the history of your home.
