The story of Britain’s towns is full of interest: it tells of where we came from and who we are now. The urban environment shapes the way we live, and knowing more about the past of towns helps to make them better places to live in now and to plan them well for the future. The Historic Towns Trust exists to tell that story through the superb historical maps and atlases we publish, supported by a range of lectures and events.
We have embarked on an ambitious strategy to enhance the impact we achieve, by increasing our output, achieving greater geographical coverage of Britain, and broadening the reach of our maps and atlases through community and educational outreach programmes.
To help us achieve these ambitions, we need to recruit new trustees. All our trustees have a lively interest in historic towns, urban history and maps. We are looking for additional trustees who share our enthusiasm and forward-looking vision, and particularly those who can also bring technical, commercial and educational skills to the Board.
We are also keen to improve diversity on our board in terms of ethnicity, age and geographical spread. In this way we want to help develop new perspectives on our work in urban history that will engage a wider range of interests and communities.
