The Road from London to Hythe


This map shows the route between London and Hythe passing through Maidstone and Ashford.

Each of the 6 ribbons that comprise the map include a compass indicating north.

Woodland, heath, and parkland are illustrated, and the distance travelled
and directions to nearby settlements are given too.

I have shown the modern spelling first and the place name as it appears on this map (c.1675) 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 this map which I have not included in my summary.
