About this title:

Synopsis: WEYMOUTH & PORTLAND:Then meets Now looks
at the borough's history through maps which date
from the Tudor period up to the twentieth
century.
Early county maps were often decorative and
colourful, but although they showed the locations
of towns and villages, and indicated features such
as hills, woods and rivers, few provided the
traveller with any information about routes which
would enable him to travel from place to place.
It was the Ordnance Survey, set up in the late
eighteenth century as the Board of Ordnance to
survey and map Great Britain for military purposes,
which provided the first of the detailed and
accurate standardised maps that we rely on today.
It is fitting that this book, which contains extracts
of many O/S maps from the nineteenth and
twentieth centuries, is published 200 years after
the first Ordnance Survey map of Dorset was
produced in 1811.
The majority of the maps included are of
Weymouth and Portland and the surrounding
villages which now lie within the borough boundary.
Also featured are sections of some of the
early county maps - these often provide interesting
and lesser-known aspects of the area, such as
lost place-names and shipwreck sites.
Accompanying each map are pictures old and
new to illustrate some of the changes each area
has undergone since the map's publication.
Together they show just what has altered and
what - remarkably - has stayed the same.
Presentation and layout is refreshingly different
The past is revisited with renewed vigour.
WEYMOUTH & PORTLAND:Then Meets Now will
be a must for locals and visitors alike.
