This lecture will present the results of a community research project based in Malton Museum which examined the history of the town plan of Malton. Many property boundaries in towns of medieval origin have remained unchanged since they were laid out at the time they were founded. Because they were permanently occupied by buildings, boundaries are particularly stable on the street frontages. Therefore, by measuring the width of the properties on the frontages and by referring to old maps of Malton the project was able to determine some of the principles the medieval surveyors used when converting open land into the town we know today.
