The wards of Farington [sic] within and Baynards Castle with its divisions into parishes, taken from the last survey, with corrections (1755)
Cartographer: Blome, Richard
This plan was published in Strype's 1755 annotated edition of Stow's 'Survey of the cities of London and Westminster'. The plan's title features in cartouche at top left, with compass star and scale bar near bottom left. The keys to streets, yards, halls, courts and private properties appear in tables down both sides of the plate. St Paul's Cathedral and other prominent buildings are shown pictorially.
First published in 1720, Strype's ward plans were carefully updated for the 1755 edition. Farringdon Ward was divided into Farringdon Within and Farringdon Without in 1394 because "the governance thereof is too laborious and grievous for one person to occupy and duly govern the same".
