The Road from London to Kings Lynn

Puckeridge to Kings Lynn


This map shows the route between Puckeridge in Hertfordshire and Kings Lynn,
passing through Cambridge, Ely and Downham Market.

Each of the six 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 these maps which I have not included in my summary.
These may include rivers, ponds, churches, windmills, blacksmiths forges, gallows and bridges.
