Micklebring 1839 Map

This is an extract from the Tithe Map of 1839 by John Snipe. This map is drawn 'upside down', with south towards the top of the page. Once the map has been printed and inspected the other way up, it becomes clear that the basic road pattern has remained largely unchanged. (If you haven’t got a printer you could try standing on your head in front of your monitor.) Cownhill Lane, however, has now diminished to an overgrown footpath. Many field and property boundaries remain unchanged, despite all the development of the past 160 years.
