About

Cynefin : Mapping Wales’ sense of Place

The Cynefin Project aims to digitise more than 1100 maps and transcribe over 36,000 apportionment documents, and link them to the relevant location on the map. Help us transcribe all the tithe maps of Wales, including their indexes, on the cynefin.wales website.

At the end of the project, a unified tithe map of Wales will be available on the People’s Collection Wales website as an additional layer in the Maps section.  

Tithe maps were produced between 1838 and 1850 following the Tithe Commutation Act of 1836 as a part of the process to ensure that all tithes were paid with money rather than produce.  They are the most detailed maps of their period and there are over a thousand of them covering more than 95% of Wales.

This is a project run by a partnership led by Archives Wales, and also includes the National Library of Wales and the People’s Collection. Most of the funding is by the Heritage Lottery Fund but there is support also from The Welsh Government through CyMAL, the National Library of Wales and Archives Wales.
