Map of Preston stories – 17th November 2009

Using google maps, I created this map showing the locations of four stories taken from the Lancashire Evening Post on Tuesday the 17th of November.

By displaying the stories using a map people can access stories which are closer to home and most relevant to them, it also gives an interactive feel to reading stories online.

My four stories are;

– The Mayor of Penwortham describing the town as being ‘like Beirut’.
– The story of a pub team from Clayton-le-woods, Preston, who have been crowned ‘pub-pool’ champions of England.
– The proposed move of the National Football Museum from Preston to Manchester coming under fire from Manchester Urbis workers.
– A park in Fulwood getting a £112,000 refurbishment.
