The Road from London to Carlisle

Barlaston to Garstang


This is the journey between Barlaston in Staffordshire and Garstang,
via Newcastle-under-Lyme, Warrington, Wigan and Preston.

Each of the seven ribbons that make up 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.
