From English Heritage: Disability in Time and Place

From English Heritage:

Disability in Time and Place reveals how disabled peoples' lives are integral to the heritage all around us.  From leper chapels built in the 1100s to protests about accessibility in the 1980s, the built environment is inextricably linked to the stories of disabled people, hidden and well-known.  This section serves as an invitation to those interested in disability or social history to explore what the historic environment has to offer. All the content has been translated into British Sign Language. You can also find out more information about buildings highlighted in these pages, some of which are open to the public.

UK - "Today, English Heritage launches Disability in Time and Place: a major new web resource. Working with disabled people and specialists in disability history, we demonstrate how disabled people have had a major influence on many well known, and less well known, buildings that we see every day. From medieval churches built with Lepers' squints to meeting places for the first disabled self-help groups in the early 20th century, you can explore the history of hundreds of buildings telling the story of disabled people's lives here:"
