Mapping out what Linton might of looked like 100 years ago.

This afternoon we were  looking at OS maps of Linton today, where we all enjoyed spotting the roads we use to get to school or where our houses are.
Then we started to think what would Linton have been like 100 years ago.
Burt, our story character, has made some bad choices in London and we decided that moving to a country village would do him good. We thought of all the things he could do in Old Linton.
A few things foxed us , such as was the Co-op there? When did Linton get its Water Tower or the Zoo? After some research on the internet, we set off mapping what was in Linton and whether it was found on the High Street or near the river and Church.
Here are some pictures of us with our completed maps.
