Drawn From the Archives

Our atlas volumes and historical maps are often accompanied with illustrations, some of which have either never or only rarely been reproduced before their publication by us. 


In this collection, we feature a selection of illustrative material from our Town & CIty Historical Maps.

Resource Support


The Historic Towns Trust archive goes back to its foundation in 1963. It is a wide-ranging and eclectic set of documents which chart the history of the charity and the way that it has developed, as well as of the British Historic Towns Atlas itself. The Historic Towns Trust has deposited its archive with the Bodleian Library in Oxford for researchers, students and the curious public to access.
