1 : 14400
This is a plan of footpaths and roads in the parish of Islington. It extends from Battle Bridge to Highgate and from ''Cruch End'' to Kings Land and the boundary to Shoreditch. An interesting feature on this map is Jack Straws House near Highbury. Jack Straw was a leader of one band of rebels who attacked the Treasurer's House at Highbury on June 14, 1381. The Peasants' Revolt over increasing taxation was largely due to the monarchy's prosectution of war against France. Toll gates are also marked in various places.
