Travel Maps

The 19th Century saw an increase in travelling across the European Continent and beyond. These travel maps will allow you to explore not only Anne Lister's journeys but those of her friends and contemporaries, using journal and travel diary entries from Lister herself but also historical documents such as bank records and letters. The material on this website has been made possible by the research, transcription, artwork, editing and consolidated efforts of many contributors, we are grateful for their work and willingness to share their research with us.

Here is our guide to get you started making your own StoryMaps!
