The unofficial Doors Open Day map

07Sep11

So it’s every nosy Bristolian’s favourite day of the year this coming Saturday (Sept 10th) and like every year, I’ve written a thing for Venue about how it’s every nosy Bristolian’s favourite day of the year.

This year, though, just for shits ‘n’ giggles I thought I’d make an unofficial Doors Open Day Google map. The big idea here is that close to most of the places open on DoD there’s something else which you might also want to go and have a look at. Usually something fairly trivial, but with a bit of a story to it.

(Heh! Did you see what I did there in the picture? I used a bit of the map with a rude word in to excite your curiosity!)

This is just me mucking about a bit. As per an earlier post, I’m collecting local stories and urban myths, and I’ve started putting them on another map (not for public consumption yet!) because, well, actually I’m not completely sure why …

Anyway, Venue’s Google Map for Doors Open Day is here.

Please note that it is not in any way endorsed by the proper Doors Open Day people, whose own website is here.

I’ve tried to make it as geographically precise as possible, and have added in whatever changes and additions to the Day’s programme that I’ve heard about.

You can use it from your web browser, or if you’d prefer it on the all-singing, all-dancing and frankly awesome Google Earth, click on the KML link towards the top left of your screen.

If you do happen to use it, either to plan your Doors Open Day from your home computer, or on the day from a mobile device or smartphone, mail to let me know how you get on, why don’t ya?
