Dunshelt

Dunshalt, Dunshelt, Denshelt, Dunshill or Dunsherley

Many older maps have now become more readily available online, and a study of maps of Dunshalt dating back to 1636 provide a fascinating insight intthe development of the village over almost 400 years. Of particular interest is how the name of the village itself has changed over that period, appearing variously as Dunshalt, Dunshelt, Denshelt, Dunshill and Dunsherley.

The table below provides easy links to (almost) all the available maps, both in snippet (the small area surrounding the village) and full map forms.
