A superbly detailed map of Westmorland, marking wards, parishes, towns, villages, turnpike roads, toll-bars, cross-roads, churches, castles, chapels, wind and water mills, heaths, commons and canals. Bottom left is a finely-engraved view of Appleby.
Christopher Greenwood, later joined by his brother John, mapped all but five of the English counties in unprecedented detail, publishing their maps between 1817 and 1834, just prior to the age of the railway. They ceased their work because of competition from the Ordnance Survey, but later issued a complete large-format atlas of county maps.
