This web application was created as the practical portion for my (Luke Orriss) University dissertation project.

The aim was to build a comprehensive application that would be used the the Great Yarmouth Local History and Archaeological Society to offer a dynamic way to interact with the Blue Plauqes located in and around Great Yarmouth. Highlighting their significance in history whilst being a modern part of the local society.

The application has been built from the ground up - utilising my own skills and ideas. The graphics and images throughout the website have been created by myself (with the exception of some of the Blue Plaque images) using a combination of Adobe products.

The main focus for the website was to offer a user friendly way of interacting with the Blue Plauqes, and to create a user friendly way for the GYLHAS to edit and maintain the application.
