Has the tithe map site crashed? I can't get on it today. Anyone else having difficulties?

It certainly is. If time-travel was possible, and you went back to somewhere you know on these maps, I reckon you'd be hard-pushed to recognise where you were! There are so few landmarks on them which have survived.

They’d left the church where it was but moved all the roads [and I'd only been away twenty years]!

Everytime I go in The Ship, The Angel, Whitelock's, etc, they're in a different order...
