Bygone Times Map Rooms
In association with Bygone Times we have created the Bygone Times Historic Map Rooms where visitors to Bygone Times can journey back in time over 500 years by viewing the perminent display of many different types of maps, plans and surveys.
The purpose built gallery containing over 100 framed reproduction maps produced directly from originals charts the history of these historic maps from c1500 to the 19th century.
There are many map browsers containing maps, plans and surveys sorted by Country District, where they can be studied or purchased. With many hundreds in the catalogue visitors can order from Bygone Times any title from the collection.
