This map was published in Strype's 1774 annotated edition of Stow's 'Survey of England'. The plan's title features in ornamental cartouche to the right of the plan, with a compass star at top left and scale bar at bottom right. The keys to streets, yards, halls, courts and private properties appear in tables along both sides of the plate. First issued in 1720, Strype's ward plans were carefully updated for this edition.
