The Road from London to Aberystwyth

Islip to Bromyard


This is the second of three maps showing the route between London and Aberystwyth,
taking in Islip, Moreton in Marsh, Pershore, Worcester and Bromyard.

Each of the six ribbons that comprise the map include a compass indicating north.

The landscape along the journey is described,
and the distance travelled and directions to nearby settlements are given too.

I have shown the place name as it appears on this map (c.1675) first, with the modern spelling in brackets.
I have only listed the places I can readily find in a modern road atlas,
but there are many more places of interest on these maps which I have not included in my summary.
These may include rivers, ponds, churches, windmills, blacksmiths forges, gallows and bridges.
