Detail from Lavaux Map of Chester showing the area around Northgate before the Canal. Lavaux does not show any gaols on his map, but he may have personal reasons for that.

This is a page for the list of articles relating to maps of, or featuring, Chester.

This enables a shorthand to be used when referring to a map.

For example, in the graphic on the right, one can click on Lavaux Map and go straight to the details of the map. Another simple example would be "..the [[Lavaux Map]] of Chester does not show the gaol..".

By using the "pipe" command, it is possible to add further links to the image to go to sub-sections of pages. The wiki-markup text for the image to get this effect is:

[[File:Zquarry.jpg|350px|thumb|right|Detail from [[Lavaux Map]] of Chester showing the area around 
 [[City_Walls#Northgate|Northgate]] before the [[Canal_and_Boatyard|Canal]]. 
 [http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_de_Lavaux Lavaux] does not show any gaols on his map, 
 but he may have personal reasons for that.]]

Using links in this manner makes it easy for people to be led from one subject to another.

Maps take up a lot of server space, and some of them may have copyright issues. So if you have a map of Chester and you think it would be useful to uplaod it to this Wiki please get in touch (using the discussion pages) first.
