Old Palace Lane Audio Guide
The Museum has created an audio guide, narrated by Bamber Gascoigne, to help you
explore the Lane itself. Follow the link below to head to izi Travel where you can see more details.
You will need to download the izi travel app to a smartphone or portable device. After this, you can either manually search for our tour using the app, or use the app’s built in QR code scanner to scan the code (this will take you straight to it).
Old Palace Lane Census Returns
The information in the censuses between 1841 and 1911 is publicly available. This give us a rich source of information for that period, telling us the names of all who were living in each property on the day of the census, their ages, relationships, occupations and where they were born. So, whilst biographical details of past residents of the Lane are limited, we have a nice picture of the components of the local community throughout this period. A transcription of these censuses can be accessed below:
