Gazetteer Widget

Add our widget to your site and allow other people to search the Gazetteer of British Place Names directly. Simply, click the link to "Add this widget" on the widget, then copy the code to paste onto your site.


The widget is displayed within its own div, which will float on the left-hand side of your page. You can also choose to have it float on the right-hand side (as this page shows) by changing the float style to 'right'. The widget should be pasted before the paragraph you want it to float with.
