The Survey of English Place-Names

The English Place-Name Society has been in existence since 1923, and has been supported morally and financially by the British Academy for most of these 77 years. The main purpose of the Society is to conduct and to publish a national place-name survey. Professor Richard Coates, President of the English Place-Name Society, outlines the original aims of the project, and traces the paths of new developments springing from the central project.
