GB1900 place name project

GB1900 Graphic

The GB1900 Project created a detailed list of the 2.5 million place names on Ordnance Survey six-inch to the mile maps of Britain (1888-1913). The project ran between September 2016 and December 2017, successfully collecting 2.5 million names by volunteers.

The GB1900 dataset can be searched in our Georeferenced Maps viewer using the Search OS six-inch 1888-1913 names: box - read our Recent Additions for further details. The GB1900 dot distribution maps allow the initial results of the GB1900 transcriptions to be viewed. You can zoom in on any place name, click on it, and read the name. There are also demonstration distributions of features and names - for example, for quarries and collieries, 'Footpath' names, and Public Buildings. The dataset is freely available from the Vision of Britain data download page.
