Ringways & maps

Have you come up with a way of using maps for Ringways References? Do you want scans uploading here, or whatever information can be given? Steven 20:44, 20 February 2010 (UTC)

No, I haven't come up with anything, and if I said I'd been actively thinking about it I'd be lying :) I have no objection to uploading map scans if you want to go that way - I think really I was just imagining the creation of a page for each map we need to reference that would list the useful information it contains, and the publisher, year and so on, rather like we list files at archives.
There's no reason at all not to put extracts online if it helps us reference our sources though! We could always try one or two and see how it looks. --chris5156 21:33, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Requests for the Manchester Awayday

Oooh flippin' heck, there's activity on this site :-O

Anyway, I intend to pop up to TNA some time before the next awayday in a few weeks and pull out anything that's relevant (such as the newspaper clippings of the M50's construction and opening I took to Ross on Wye, not that anyone except me bothered to look at them).

Any ideas? I was thinking of something to do with the original M62 and the East Lancs Road but my TNA search-fu is not up to par this morning. --Ritchie333 11:26, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
