Layers of London relies on anyone interested in the history of London – or just small parts of it – getting involved and contributing. We’d like to hear from anyone who would be interested in taking part in the project, or who would simply like to stay in touch with how things are going.

At the moment we’d particularly like to hear from you if you are interested in:

  1. Contributing to the website’s historical content.
  2. Seeking out interesting projects in your neighbourhood or borough that you think should be on Layers of London.
  3. Volunteering your time to help people who aren't comfortable using a computer to upload information that can contribute to our knowledge of London and its history.
  4. Reviewing the website to identify errors, inaccurate information, or inappropriate contributions.
