This plan of part of South Warwickshire shows the broad valley of the River Avon to the left of the sheet with the county town shown at middle left along the riverbank. Major roads are highlighted in buff and feature tollgates and turnpikes along their routes. Turnpike Trusts were established between the 17th and 19th centuries to raise money from travellers for the upkeep and maintenance of roads.
