Search for Britain's Poetry Landmarks

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search was re-opened after 2003, the project is no longer live, and any information contained on the map may well be out of date.

"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)
