Maps
« on: July 05, 2005, 09:10:13 PM »
One of the things I get lots of emails from visitors to the website about is where is Downham (and are we the Downham in Norfolk - no, that's Downham Market but I'm sure it's nearly as nice there)

Google have been developing some amazing map tools, including the incredible Google Earth programme you can download here: http://earth.google.com/ but be warned - it's addictive!

Their Google Maps site is pretty impressive too, and here's a link to a view of most of Downham: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=51.425062,0.005236&spn=0.014388,0.034450&hl=en

Click the satellite link on the map and it turns into this:

Good fun!

Here's a link to a close up of the still derelict site where the new Leisure Centre is due to be built - one of these years, they keep promising...
