Dnno if this has been posted before, but in reference to Ghostly1's thread about Stanlow Abbey, there was a site linked from the Wikipedia article, called Old-Maps.co.uk, and it seems very good.

Im guessing, it may be of interest to us folk on here?

www.old-maps.co.uk

Also handy if anyone likes looking at old maps. Of Cheshire at least. I use old-maps a lot, it's good to try and get an overlay to see how things have changed, dislike the watermarking but I guess it's an essential evil!
