Every Map Tells A Story
North Yorkshire County Records Office
Explore the world of maps by personalising your very own map of Northallerton with journeys, locations and places special to you
This year the Record Office is excited to be
involved with The Big Draw: an annual drawing festival which sees galleries,
museums and heritage sites across the country hold events for anyone who loves
to draw, as well as those who think they can't!
On Saturday 3rd October we invite
you to personalise your own map of Northallerton. Draw, write or mark journeys,
locations, or special places onto a series of historic and modern maps. Show
how you live, work and play in the county town.
How do you use the High Street?
What journey do you take to school?
Where do you meet your friends?
How do you think your ancestors used the town?
Meet the ‘Map Men’ from County Hall who will
project historic to present day plans of Northallerton and show you how to
access historic maps online.
Also on display for the month of October will
be an exhibition of maps from the archives, showing how and why they are made.
Saturday 3rd October
Drop in any time between 10am and 3pm,
Drawing materials and refreshments provided,
