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
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
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
A broadband connection is recommended in order to speed the
downloading of the maps. Worcestershire Libraries provide free access to
Digital photographs of the original maps are available on
CD and can be purchased from the Hive.
