367 addresses..

The process of mapping all 2000 addresses is a lengthy one that gives┬áme lots of time to contemplate the significance of the list and lists of names.. So far I am only up to 367, ┬áless than a quarter and the map already looks like this. This is also taking into consideration that probably an eighth of the addresses are no longer existing, either as original houses or new houses build on the same site. This week I came across 3 addresses on Maudland Bank, number 69, 73 and 76, practically next door neighbours. I’m sure there will be more addresses close to them before I finish.
