Maps of Aston, Cote, Shifford and Chimney
Scale: 1 : 31680
Description: William Stanley was listed as a first class Military surveyor and draughtsman at the Drawing Room of the Tower of London. In 1821, he was asked to revise this plan by the Ordnance Survey's Superintendent, William Mudge. Stanley wrote to explain that he had "a great deal of trouble" in finding his field books and sketches "in consequence of its being so long since it was done, about 10 years." The dirty and torn condition of the drawing most likely results from constant travelling between the Tower and the surveyors in the field for amendments and corrections. Inns named include "Tumble Down Dick", "Rose and Crown", and "Kingstones Inn". Tollgates are also noted.
Contibutor: Stanley, William
