This map is not drawn with north at the top. Potters Bar appears at the bottom left, almost on a level with Hertford at the bottom right. The remains of the Old Royal Palace of Hatfield are shown near the centre of the map. This was the home of Elizabeth I (1533-1603) prior to her accession to the throne. Also featured is Hatfield, the house built in 1611 by the first Earl of Salisbury, Robert Cecil (1563-1612). A poorhouse is marked just outside the town.
