The Mapping Medieval Chester project has been undertaken with the support, help and guidance of many people beyond the immediate project team.

We would like to offer special thanks to all the members of our Advisory Committee: Rob Barrett, Ceri Davies, Sue Hughes and Simon Ward. Our advisors have been extremely generous with their expertise, advice and energy and have played a vital role in the development of the project research and resources.

Many other people have also made valuable contributions to the project. It’s not possible to name everyone here, but we would like to thank the following in particular:

  • Gill Alexander, for drawing the wonderful ‘static’ maps based on the project GIS data
  • Jane Laughton, for sharing her extensive knowledge of medieval Chester
  • Chester Cathedral, for giving us special access to the tower (for our GPS base station)
  • Paul Newman and all the staff of the Cheshire and Chester Archives
  • The staff of Duke Humfrey’s reading room, Bodleian Library
  • Peter Davenport, for providing the OS 1:500 scans
  • David Chesters
  • Alan Thacker
  • Vanessa Greatorex
  • Liza Penn-Thomas
  • Lisa Herlihy
  • Charlotte Jackson
  • Geraint Evans

We are also grateful to the AHRC for the funding which has enabled this collaborative research project.
