Saffron Walden on the Map

This resource pack uses images of three historic maps of Saffron Walden from the ERO’s collections to explore continuity and change in the town over time, and how we can use maps as sources to find out about the past.

The pack is aimed at KS2 History pupils, but could be used with older or younger students and for different areas of study.

The pack consists of a PowerPoint presentation and teachers’ notes, which can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
