Do you know any local place names?

A new website is asking local people to help create a comprehensive record of local placenames.

The website is very user-friendly and allows contributors to log on a map, local names such as field names, lanes, crossroads,
street corners etc.

There is no threshold of evidence needed, all a contributor has to do is log the name and, if possible, write a line as to the origin of the name, if known.

The site is ideal for putting on the record place-names -which have not been picked up in the Ordnance Survey mapping.
