A Vision of Britain Through Time


Published: 20th July 2009

This free-to-use and publically accessible website has now been updated and re-launched with a new look, extra content and improved search tools thanks largely to funding from JISC (the Joint Information Systems Committee of Britain's universities).

Among the latest additions is a full listing of every General Election result, 1832 to the present, by constituency and as a whole - the first time this information has been accessible online free of charge.

Others additions include historic boundary maps, greater details of how land use and agriculture have changed, extra insight into labour market trends, including unemployment and wages, and a greatly-expanded collection of travel writing, providing seven centuries of comment and observation, by artists, authors, preachers, social reformers and agitators.

In short - one click unlocks a treasure trove of historical facts, figures, maps and viewpoints covering almost every settlement in Britain from many perspectives.
