A WEBSITE detailing what Mansfield is like today and back in 1986 is up and running.

In June, we reported that members of the Brookside (Mansfield) Women’s Institute, along with other WI groups in Mansfield and Ashfield, collected details about life in 2011 and took photographs.

In 1986, accounts of ordinary lives throughout the UK were documented in the BBC’s Domesday Project which marked the 900th anniversary of William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book.

Earlier this year, the BBC launched its Domesday Reloaded project wich gives people the chance to see this information and pictures, along with updated accounts.
