Some sterling work done there. For my part I think I might take a look into the old Kinsealy brewery that was mentioned.

Great resource guys, well done. Just thinking - letters to local press might be a good way to get some extra info.

Thanks. This is only scratching the surface really, but I hope the map will form an index of sorts to provide stubs to help kick off deeper research. There are so many marked on the maps of the first half of the 19th C. -- and the majority most likely have little remaining on record -- that it'll be a big job to find out details on all of those found so far. That's why it's important to open this out and get you guys pulling in stuff where possible.

Of course the next [i:2a58taiy]real[/i:2a58taiy] challenge is getting this Wiki working the way we want it <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->
