First House History Logs Launched

We are making slow but exciting progress with our social history project - the 'Bedford Park House Histories'.  We have successfully accessed Census records from 1939, 1911 and 1901 for all our participants, giving them an insight into who lived in their homes  since they were built. We have also brought together the information from the local history society and library and a group of local historians to add to the information our participants can acess.  

The most exciting development is that we have now rolled out our first 20 test House Logs to participants in the project.  The picture below shows one of the logs set up for the owner of a house in Woodstock Road. Click below to see an example of one of the online history logs that our project participants will be getting.  

You will see that it contains background information on Bedford Park, on the road names and a set of Census entries for a property. Project participants can then add details from their deeds or any other documents they have detailing occupants of their homes.   If you would like to join in the project and get one of the online logs please email This email address is being protected from spambots.

New Map of Listed Properties In BP

We have a new map available to play with showing a live feed of all the listed properties in Bedford Park.  The map is fully interactive and allows you to click on an icon and pull up a picture and description of the building in question. It also covers more than just buildings, listing the phone box outside St Michael's And All Angels (which for those of you intrigued is a 1935 K6 Model, called the 'Jubiliee model' See more information here: Wikipedia.org/Red_telephone_box).

The map was put together by data and mapping expert Dan Cookson - @danc00ks0n - using a data set that has been made available to developers by Historic England.  The map also includes information on the Blue Plaques in the area using data made available by openplaques.org.   Dan's map actually covers the whole of the UK but he has kindly shared the Bedford Park section with us.
