Google maps can be panned to view an area off the map, by clicking and dragging the map. You can also select a church from the links in the list further down this page to centre the map on a particular one.

If this county section of the database is being actively developed you can also drag and drop a church marker if it is in the wrong place, and then enter a dialogue to report it to us. Also if a church is missing you can drag and drop any existing marker to an appropriate location and use the option to report it to us.

Key to map icons

In the following notes for convenience the term 'church' is used to refer all places of worship and cemeteries. It is not appropriate in a minority of cases, but there is no word that adequately covers them all..

Colour

Churches are grouped according to denomination, e.g. all the types of Methodism are grouped together. Each group has its own colour.

Shape

marker The icons used for churches for which we have an exact location have a teardrop shape.
marker If we only have an approximate location (usually within a street), a square icon is used.
marker If we only know it is in a town or place, but for which we haven't yet found even an approximate location, an icon with jagged edges is used. The marker for these is placed at a random location within a 1 Km square on the map.

If you would like to notify us of a more accurate church location, just drag the appropriate marker to the new location and then click the notify link which will then appear. Zooming and using the satellite image may help with this. In the list of churches below the map, those with an approximate location are marked with a +, and those where we don't even have an approximate location are marked with a *. Click the + or * to show a map containing just that icon.

Numbers

The number in the icon is provided to make it easier to find individual churches using the list of place names under the map. Denominations are grouped according to type and each type has its own range of numbers. Some icons may not have numbers yet, as they have only been created for the lower numbers so far. You can also see the name of the place by holding the mouse over the relevant icon. If you click on the name of a church in the list below the map, the map will pan so that the one you have selected is in the middle of the map.

Further information about a church

Click the icon for an individual church and an information box will appear. This contains links to further information about it, and links for further searches centred on that church.
