In the second half of the 18th century, the introduction of turnpike roads and the increased coach-traffic in and out of London contributed to the popularity of the maps of the countryside around the capital.

This is the second edition of Andrews' 1782 survey. The map's title features in a panel above the plan, with county boundaries outlined in colour, parks in green and main roads in yellow. The border of the map is divided in degrees of latitude and longitude.
