We've Launched!

Posted by Peter Guillery on Sept. 16, 2016

It’s an exciting day for us at the Survey of London and CASA, as we’re proud to have officially launched the Histories of Whitechapel website. As well as providing a new interactive map for exploring the Survey’s ongoing research into Whitechapel, we’re inviting people to submit their own memories, research, photographs, and videos of the area to help us uncover Whitechapel’s long and rich history.

The site has been developed at The Bartlett between the Survey of London and the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, with support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). You can download the full press release here.

This is a new venture for the Survey of London and CASA, and we’re looking forward to watching the site grow with contributions from the public. To start exploring Whitechapel’s history or to contribute your own knowledge of the area, visit the map at
