The Road from Chelmsford to Maldon, Raleigh and Gravesend

And the Road from Canterbury to Dover


This interesting chart shows three journeys starting at Chelmsford - to Maldon,
Raleigh and finally Gravesend via Billericay.

The final two ribbons then show the route between Canterbury and Dover,
passing Sandwich and Deal.

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.
