The Road from London to Poole

The Road from Alresford to Poole, continued to Lymington,
With the Road from Southampton to Winchester

This map shows routes in Hampshire and Dorset, between Alresford and Lymington,
passing Winchester, Romsey, Poole and Christchurch en route.
The final ribbon depicts the road from Southampton to Winchester.

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.
