LIPCAP Study Area Historic Map Overlays: 1880s

The following maps show the buildings recorded on the 1880s maps (1881 1:2500 Country Series for Allestree; 1883 1:500 Town Plan for the other study areas) overlaid on satellite images of the areas in the present day (2013)

For larger versions of the maps, click on the images.

If you live in any of these areas, and you are able to recognise the location of your home, you should be abl to see if there was a building there in the 1880s, and whether this was a house, or had another function.

Public participation: LIPCAP Study Areas

The LIPCAP study areas are illustrated below (for larger versions of the maps, click on the images). Residents of old houses (dating to or before the late Victorian period and early 20th century) within these areas – in the listed streets (thanks very much to Dave and Louise for this) – can take take part in the project.

Maps that indicate the location of houses dating to this time, and details of the different ways to participate, will soon be posted.

If interested in taking part, but not living in an old house, there will be other ways to do so – details to follow soon.
