The Road from London to Southampton

Bagshot to Southampton, Continued to Salisbury


This map shows the journey from Bagshot to Southampton via Alresford,
and then the route back inland from Southampton to Salisbury.

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.
