Worcestershire Tithe and Inclosure Map Project

This project provides on-line access to digitised 18th and 19th century maps in the county, with their attached documentary evidence. Together, these transform flat maps and documents into a powerful searchable research tool. 

The capabilities of the system can be only partially demonstrated on-line. The full system, showing tithe and inclosure maps with all the information held on the Historic Environment Record, is available at the offices of the Historic Environment and Archaeology Service. Contact the Historic Environment Record to arrange an appointment to view these maps and records.  

New maps are added as they are completed and there is not full coverage of the county yet. Progress so far

The links below give access to an internet mapping system for viewing modern and historic maps. 

The Badsey GIS links to a separate site containing further historical information about the parishes of Badsey and Aldington.  The Stourport GIS links to a separate site with access to research done by Stourport Civic Society as part of Unlocking Stourport's Past which used the tithe maps for information. The Hanley Castle GIS links to a separate site containing a series of historical maps digitised as part of a local project.  For more information about these projects see the Project Partners page.

A broadband connection is recommended in order to speed the downloading of the maps. Worcestershire Libraries provide free access to broadband computers.

Digital photographs of the original maps are available on CD and can be purchased from the Hive.
