Neighbouring villages are an important source of information for any one-place study. The geographic features of the landscape, in particular transport links like roads and railways, often determined where people might go on a regular basis and who they might meet. Marrying someone from a neighbouring parish, or moving there, is common.

Is there a one-place-study for any of the villages near to your own one-place study? The maps on each region's Studies page will help identify if this is the case. All pins are the same colour so the nearest one-place study might be one in a neighbouring county where you might not have thought to look. Get together with your neighbouring one-place studies and see what information you might have for each other!
