I recently came across a copy of this map at the Lancashire Archives (Lancashire Records Office). It shows details of mills and weirs relating to a lawsuit. It seems that the original resides in the National Archives and, in order to place a copy of the map on this or http://www.wyrearchaeology.org.uk website I would need their permission. This I requested and was given a quote of £40. This for a publically owned document (originally the Duchy of Lancaster) and, in my opinion, should be in the public domain. I feel an email to my MP coming on.

If you wish to see a copy at Lancashire Archives the reference is DP/462/1.

Dave,
I assume that I could go to the Records Office, take a photo and post it on the website, with the permission of LRO, like we did with the 1684 "Kings" map. Cheaper and easier option maybe!

Frank.

Unfortunately not. I have a digital photograph of the copy held at the Records Office and asked them for permission to publish. They couldn't give permission because they didn't have the copyright. They then pointed me to the National Archives.

My MP hasn't yet responded.
