The Road from York to Chester

With the Road from Manchester to Derby


Warrington to Chester and Manchester to Derby


The first two sections of this map chart the route between Warrington and Chester, via Frodsham.
The remainder of the chart details the journey from Manchester to Derby,
taking in Stockport and Buxton.

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.
