PLEASE NOTE: The maps are very detailed, and I try to reflect this when I write my descriptions; there may be a few typo errors! so if you are looking for a particular street, house, farm or place, please ask us to verify its presence before buying. Should you be looking for a particular farm, public house or similar - please ask (give us a nearby large town to work from). A digital copy of the provenance is available if requested on completion of purchase of this map.
