The Road from London to Montgomery

Four Shire Stone to Montgomery

This is the journey from the Four Shire Stone,
near Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire, to Montgomery.
Evesham, Worcester and Ludlow are passed on the way.

Each of the ribbons which 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.
