This photograph is a landmark that becomes the starting place for making maps about the community of Broadwell, the School and Church were built in late 1860s the stories behind them unfold and become the community of Broadwell.

Reading maps does not tell the complete history, where people lived, where they worked, shopped, went to school,played are all a jigsaw of moments and memories that continue today…
