THE ROAD FROM KINGS LYNN TO HARWICH IN ESSEX

An interesting, detailed, mid 18th century antique road strip map, showing the route from Kings Lynn in Norfolk to Harwich in Essex via Swaffham & Thetford in Norfolk and Stowlangtoft, Ackenham & Ipswich in Suffolk .

Published in

"An Actual Survey of all Principal Roads of England & Wales "

By John Bowles 1757


John Bowles re-published the John Senex maps which are based on the earlier survey of the roads by John Ogilby. The maps were printed back to back and an unrelated map appears verso.

The map depicts a route in the form of 6 vertical strips with a compass rose showing orientation; also shown are distance in miles from Kings Lynn, towns, churches, windmills, rivers, woods and hills which are shown pictorially.

On hand laid paper, delicately enhanced with later hand colouring and mounted ready to frame in an ivory coloured mount.



For greater detail please view further close up images.

A most attractive map which would frame well.

Measuring approx 9" x 7.5" ( 230mm x 190mm ) map area only. 13.5" x 11.5" ( 340mm x 290mm ) overall including mount.


Please note the map can be supplied without the mount if required.
