Use the transparency overlay to fade images, or use the Spy viewer for an instant view. Fascinating. Cool

Re: Ever wondered what was there a hundred years ago?

Always interesting those sort of things nozzer and looking at my own area, it's amazing just how many railways lines there were around here.

Going back a 'little bit' further to 1066 and before clicking on the link, guess what this place below is called now.

Households 

  • Households: 5 villagers. 4 smallholders.

Land and resources 

  • Ploughland: 6 ploughlands. 1 lord's plough teams. 2 men's plough teams.
  • Other resources: Woodland 0.5 league * 2 furlongs mixed measures.

Valuation 

Annual value to lord: 1 pound in 1086; 1 pound in 1066.

@Minivanman Birmingham. I didn't need to click the link either as hovering over it exposes the link Funny

I'm now looking for something that tells me what will be there in 100 years time. Thumbs_Up

The hurricane Dorian thing? Yeah, I saw that. Almost a "real-time" forecast. Grin

@Minivanman FWIW, in Firefox (Mac) I see this when I place the mouse over your link.
