Godfrey Maps of Sheffield 1901 - 1905

Just an idea,

using the Godfrey maps of Sheffield, would it be a good idea to have a database of all the named Houses, Halls, Lodges, Farms, Schools, Cottages, Churches, Chapels, Works etc etc, that appear on these maps? Another one of my A-Z's!

I dont know at the moment what this will acheive, but there's something about it that appeals to me, what about you? We could have a 'Godfrey section' for each sheet to keep it all 'tidy'?

We would have a hell of a lot to go at in research terms, pics, people, history etc, and get us out the house for the pics of anything left standing!

I have 21 sheets for Sheffield and this morning i did the 'Ecclesall Village 1902, sheet 294.14' just as an exercise.

We should do the listing first maybe then the research to keep it 'tidy'? Do you think it's worth doing the rest?

Dean, go and lie down in a dark room for a bit and see if it passes off, you've been overdoing it! ;-)

I commandeer Sheffield Longley as there was a lot of nice open space on that one! ;-)

I dont want to teach anyone how to suck eggs but the best way i found of searching the maps was by searching between the folds in the map, if that makes sense.

I'll do -

Rivelin Glen

Loxley Valley

Sheffield (West)

High Green & Thorncliffe

Nether Edge

i'll take these off the list and amend the above post.

Hi Gramps, a work in progress this! Making it up as i go along!

Just thought to get all the listing done first then figure that out later!

I've only listed Houses, Cottages, Halls, Farms etc up to now. We could also add Churches, Chapels, Works, Woods, Mills, etc later by editing our posts.
