Online Resources For Exploring Old Railways In The UK


This course is about the online resources available to research old railways and other historic locations in the UK.

Overview

Description
This course is about the online resources available to research old railways and other historic locations in the UK.

First, we look at the old maps available on the National Library of Scotland website - a wonderful resource. The Ordnance Survey published the first series of maps covering the whole of the UK in the 1880’s. The NLS has digitised all of these maps and the later map series right through to the 1960’s. That makes it possible to view the changes in a landscape or location over time.

The course will show how to use the online maps to identify the routes of dismantled railways and other items.

The course will also look at several other online information sources about the old railways and other historical structures.

This course is aimed at those researching railways and other historical sites in the UK. Other countries are not covered but if British history is your thing, I think you'll find this course useful.

A short course is a learning programme that gives you combined content or specific skills training in a short period of time. Short courses often lean towards the more practical side of things and have less theory than a university course – this gives you a more hands-on experience within your field of interest.
