The Road from Whitby to Durham

Continued to Tynemouth


This chart shows the route, through Yorkshire and the County of Durham,
between Whitby and Tynemouth, passing Stockton on Tees, Sedgfield and Durham en route.

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.
