Henley-in-Arden

1 : 31680 This plan covers parts of Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Hill contours are described by brushwork interlining ('hachuring') combined with shaded bands of colour wash, which graduate to almost colourless at the summits. The order of ascending heights is expressed by rising numbers, a technique that became known as 'relative command'. Colour washes and symbols distinguish woods, meadows, common and arable land.

Birmingham 24

1 : 31680 This drawing is attributed to Robert Dawson. Different shades of green are employed to distinguish different land uses, and darker tones to describe the bold undulation of the landscape. Birmingham is depicted top left, at the centre of a network of toll roads and canals. Prominently featured on the plan is the Grand Junction Canal. This waterway was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in this region at the beginning of the 19th century, carrying raw materials to mills and industrial centres, and finished goods to markets throughout Britain.

VIGORNIENSIS Comitatus Sheet 21

This map of Worcestershire is from the 1583 edition of the Saxton atlas of England and Wales.This atlas was first published as a whole in 1579. It consists of 35 coloured maps depicting the counties of England and Wales. The atlas is of great significance to British cartography as it set a standard of cartographic representation in Britain and the maps remained the basis for English county mapping, with few exceptions, until after 1750. During the reign of Elizabeth I map use became more common, with many government matters referring to increasingly accurate maps with consistent scales and symbols, made possible by advances in surveying techniques. Illustrating the increasing used of maps in government matters, Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State, who had been determined to have England and Wales mapped in detail from the 1550s, selected the cartographer Christopher Saxton to produce a detailed and consistent survey of the country. The financier of the project was Thomas Seckford Master of Requests at the Court of Elizabeth I, whose arms appear, along with the royal crest, on each map. Saxton, Christopher Ryther, Augustine

Map of Worcestershire

This is a manuscript map of Worcestershire. The date and draughtsman are not known. It forms part of an atlas that belonged to William Cecil Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State. Burghley used this atlas to illustrate domestic matters. The dominant features of the landscape are the waterways and the parks which are shown by symbols of fenced enclosures. These were of central importance to any military campaign. The fastest way to move a lot of men and weaponry was by river and parks provided somewhere for troops to set up camp and for horses to graze. Lord Burghley has annotated the map. In the left margin he has added a list of residents of the area and what lands and properties they are associated with, inserting some of these into the map itself. This is a good indication of how detailed was the knowledge accumulated by Burghley. William Cecil, Lord Burghley

Map of Northhamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Huntigdonshire and Rutland

This is a manuscript map of Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire and Rutland, a page from an atlas that belonged to William Cecil Lord Burghley, Elizabeth I’s Secretary of State. Burghley used this atlas to illustrate domestic matters.It is in a hand pre dating 1570 and may be the work of John Rudd. Rudd was the man to whom Christopher Saxton was an apprentice to in 1570. John Rudd was Vicar of Dewsbury from 1554 to 1570. Rudd had a keen interest in cartography and had been engaged in the 1550’s in making a platt’ of England. In 1561 Rudd was granted leave to travel further to map the country and it is likely that Saxton accompanied him, acquiring his skills for surveying. Rudd, John
