Putting Christ College on the map

We are very excited to be collaborating with the Historic Towns Trust

Anyone who has seen the Historic Maps of Swansea and Mumbles or any of the Historic Maps produced by the Historic Towns Trust will already know of the high quality research and cartography that make the map series so fascinating and engaging. Plans are currently afoot to add Historic Maps of Brecon and Hay-on-Wye to the series, and we're delighted to be collaborating with Helen Fulton and her team. 

Based on historic OS mapping, the new maps will bring alive the two Norman Marcher towns, fourteen miles apart, and today quite different in size and purpose, but sharing a history of border warfare, ecclesiastical importance, and commercial significance.

The historic towns maps are modern maps showing the history of the town — not reproductions of old maps. Each one includes an introduction to the map, a history of the featured town, and gazetteer providing a brief history of the main features shown on the map.

With a site that includes a significant group of medieval and Victorian buildings, Christ College will certainly feature in the Brecon map. We're looking forward to supporting what will be a fascinating version of the town's history. As the project unfolds, we'll keep you updated with progress.

The Historic Towns Trust is a registered charity whose mission is to publish historical maps and atlases of the towns and cities of Britain for educational purposes and to raise awareness of Britain’s urban heritage.To find out more about its work and to learn more about maps already published, visit the Historic Towns Trust website.  

The Trust needs to raise £35,000 to create the Maps of Historic Brecon and Hay-on-Wye. If you have connections with any organisations that may be interested in supporting the project or would like to support the project yourself, you can contact the Trust directly by email: development@historictownstrust.uk.
