Very good maps. Problem: they are modern maps and the place names most
listers want to know about are thoae existing around 1800 or earlier.

A modern map is a huge help though.

is a page I started (hoping to have others from the list contribute) on
which are listed placenames with their modern equivalents and a map
reference so they may be located on the modern OS map.

You could use the existing list to identify these places!
