To enter the archived Poetry Landmarks of Britain, click on the map below. PLEASE NOTE that the information on this site will not have been updated for a significant amount of time:
In 2003, to mark the tenth anniversary of National Poetry Day, the Poetry Society launched a search to find the Poetry Landmarks of Britain. Since that time we've found the Poetry Landmarks section of our website to be a first 'port of call' when researching poetry in a particular region. Though the search was re-opened after 2003, the project is no longer live, and any information contained on the map may well be out of date.
Poetry Landmark suggestions used to be submitted via the online registration form.
"a wonderfully simple, useful and visually appealing idea...Poetry Landmarks is a project to map all things versicular across the country...plotted on an interactive map of Britain, searchable by region or category. There are already a number of listings on the map but they need your help to make it even more useful. What are you waiting for?" Guardian Unlimited Books site of the week citation)
