(a) The original maps were drawn to the scale of twelve chains to one inch (ie 1:9504).
(b) Where known, the modern name of the farm is provided although field and farm boundaries may have changed since these maps were drawn.
(c) The maps marked with an asterisk [*] indicate that full-sized high-definition images are available for research or display via this website. Please contact website for details.]
On each plan buildings are coloured red, roads yellow, water blue, arable cultivation brown, and woodland and pasture different shades of green; the names of adjoining farms are given; as are alphanumerical codes that refer to an accompanying terrier which provided details of the field names, acreages and their tenants. The maps are individually catalogued in Bendall (1992). [Text from 'Wimpole' by David Adshead, published by the National Trust, 2007]
