Historic Towns Trust
The Historic Towns Trust has ambitious plans to produce atlases of a large number of towns and cities across Great Britain, and to address the relative lack of towns in Wales and Scotland covered to date. A long-list of possible towns and cities has been drawn up, including Welsh and Scottish towns and industrial cities in the north of England. We are now looking at which of those may be suitable for further research and which may lend themselves to an atlas project.
For an atlas to be produced, a local team has to be assembled and money raised to pay for its production. Each project that we embark on has to be accompanied by a substantial fundraising campaign; running such a campaign takes time and patience.
The Trust is also set to embark on a substantial fundraising campaign to increase its core capital, and to fund the administration and project management that accompanies its work.
