Somerset 'Then' and 'Now' locations

We are attempting to list some places in Somerset where photographers can photograph locations that have been photographed at a far earlier time, this is a part of 'then and now' photography. This is the start of a list that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information.

Then and Now Photography  involves looking at a past image, be it a photograph, drawing or painting and then attempting to take the same image in the same place today. Many of our location guides have old images so that you can see how the place has changed over time, Lighthouses   being a good example. This listing is of location guides that we have specifically produced looking at the 'then and now' image rather than the development or other history of the location. You can find other 'then and now' locations identified in the Then and Now Locations  list and the pages linked from it on specific topics.

Where the name in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page on this resource with more information and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.
