It's a map site where you can overlay old maps over a current aerial one to see how your location has changed over time. Fully zoomable.

Sounds interesting as I like maps and history. Sadly it's only Scotland, England, Wales and the Isle Of Man so I can't use it for my local area sad.gif

One think that's easy to see on old maps is how many more railways there were. e.g. Cheltenham used to have 5 stations, now just one.
