    I’m not sure if this is the right place to report it, but I could find no other “Contact” page or email address… There is some confusion on your site between Minster in Thanet and Minster in Sheppey (see e.g. http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/gaztext_page.jsp?u_id=10222990&c_id= and also the maps for the Ringslow Hundred which appear to show it at two quite disjointed locations).

    Thank-you for your interest in our website. The preferred method for identifying errors about A Vision of Britain through Time is a help form on the site itself. Unfortunately this form had to be temporarily disabled due to high spam levels, we are working on a solution.

    There are two quite separately defined places in the system;
    one for Minster in Thanet: http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/place_page.jsp?p_id=6280&st=MINSTER
    one for Minster in Sheppey: http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/place_page.jsp?p_id=6281&st=MINSTER
    Each has different administrative units, statistics and historical descriptions attached to it.

    However, it does look like there is an error with the association of boundaries for Minster in Thanet. This in turn would lead to a problem with the boundaries of Ringlow hundred as well because the hundred boundaries are approximate and were created by aggregating their constituent parishes. We are currently in the process of updating all our parish level boundaries and we will investigate this particular anomaly during this process.

      No plans to add any more Travellers Tales at the moment. Although D. Wordworth’s Recollections of a Tour Made in Scotland, A. D. 1803 would be a good candidate as it is available in a suitable format, unfortunately adding new historical Travellers Tales to A Vision of Britain through Time is actually quite time consuming and we have other priorities at the moment, sorry.

  4. Hello, I don’t know if you will read this message, but I was wondering if you were aware that the website is down at the moment and if you could kindly let me know if you are working towards restoring it, and when this might be?
    Regards from an anxious student 🙂
