The Road from Exeter to Dorchester
With the Road from Plymouth to Dartmouth

This map shows the journey between Exeter and Dorchester, passing Lyme Regis and Bridport.
The final two ribbons detail the route from Plymouth to Dartmouth.

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.
