The History Race Project

Some time ago I was asked to contribute to a friend’s new website, HistoryRace. The idea behind her site is to record local history in a country-wide map, with posts added by residents who are encouraged to ’embroider’ their patch.

I posted mine about the town I live in and how it is still firmly linked with the Blanket/Wool industry.

It was a brilliant excuse to look again at the place we live in and dig a little under the surface to see that history is actually everywhere you look. As you’ll see from my entry, Elliot loved it too!

I hope you like looking at the site as much as I do. I can’t wait to see where it goes next!Image
