This is an 18th-century copy of Ralph Treswell's plan of the property of St Bartholomew's Hospital. A painter by trade, Treswell was also a mapmaker and one of the first surveyors of the modern era. The plan features orientation points marked on margins. The buildings in St Bartholomew's Estate, St Sepulchre's Churchyard, the ditch running from Smithfield Bars to the Common Shore and Smithfield are shown pictorially.
