Interactive Map of Worcester

right arrow grey Access the interactive map of Worcester

This is an interactive map displaying relevant records held at in the Archive Service relating to particular locations of historic interest.

 A broadband connection is recommended, otherwise it may take some time for the maps to load. To use the map, ensure the 'Worcester Archives' box is ticked. Each coloured shape on the map represents a different geographical place or feature. The Archive Service's holdings go back several centuries, and some of the shapes relate to places that no longer exist or have changed use. To help locate historic features, there is an option to view 'Historical' OS maps from the 1880s. However, these do not cover much beyond the City of Worcester, due to licensing issues. The other types of map and aerial photos do cover the entire county.

Clicking on a shape opens a box containing place name information and a link to the relevant entry in the online catalogue. This will provide information about the type, extent and dates of documents the Archive Service holds relating to that place. The original documents can be viewed at the Archive Service. There are currently over 200 features that are linked to the online catalogue. The majority are within Worcester City but it is being expanded to cover the rest of the county. This is an ongoing project and not all the Archive Service's collections are in either the GIS map or the online catalogue.
