This site is mainly dedicated to my cartographic and related interests, with the hope of stimulating discussions, via email to the address  

Please note that if you send an email to this address you will be considered to have given me permission to place the whole or a selection of its content on the discussions page of this site.

My interests in cartography range over a wide area, but concentrate mainly on the mapping of Britain, particularly in the 16th to 18th centuries, and in map projections. Subsidiary interests are in the use of maps in the press and in publications that contain maps, such as the Bradley books on Yorkshire rivers.
