31st October 2010 - 4000+ pages added

We have just finished adding over 4000 more descriptions from the Gazetteer of England and Wales, across all English and Welsh counties. There is a fair amount of residual work to do with adding all of the villages, hamlets etc. to the parish pages, but we are now working on that.

9th October 2010 - 1500+ pages added

We have just finished adding over 1500 more descriptions from the Gazetteer of England and Wales, across all English counties.

31st August 2010 - Three hundred more pages added

We have just finished adding another 300 or so descriptions from the Gazetteer of England and Wales, across all English counties and also Anglesey, Breconshire, and Carnarvonshire in Wales.

Over the next couple of days we will be making slight tweaks to the county pages to improve the layout slightly. This will involve moving the map over to the right of the page, and changing the flow of the descriptions.

19th August 2010 - Completed phase three and loads of additions

Over the past couple of days we have loaded the final page layout changes of the new site design.

We have also added approximately 700 new descriptions to places in all English counties. This takes us to half way through adding descriptions of all parishes and places in England. We will be continuing with the rollout over the next couple of months until all are completed, including Wales. We will then be focussing on the Scottish pages to bring them to the same standard.

Today we added photographs of some of the Cornish churches to the relevant parish pages:

Breage, Cornelly, Creed, Crowan, Cuby, Germoe, and Gerrans. We also added a list of the rectors of Gerrans.

25th July 2010 - New site design phase 2 launched.

Today we completed the second phase of the new site design and layout. This phase added a last modified date to each of the parish pages, and another 65 descriptions for parishes in Oxfordshire. The final phase will launch all remaining miscellaneous pages in the new format and add the modified date to the county index pages.

We have spent a lot of time deciding how best to provide the navigation facilities, and we hope you will find the new style cleaner and better laid out than before.

Over the coming months we will be adding new databases with lots of new content, so please check back regularly to see what is new.
