One of the earliest known English local plans, this comes from the book containing copies of charters of Waltham Abbey and is a copy of about 1250 of an original plan of about 1220. At the top (East, marked by a cross) are the springs at Wormley in Hertfordshire on the road to Cheshunt. The rest of the plan follows the waterpipe for three miles to Waltham Abbey.
