This plan was published in Strype's first annotated edition of Stowe's 'Survey of the Cities of London and Westminster'. Sadler's Well's is marked on the map near the top of the sheet. Built in 1683, at the time of the publication of this map, it was little more than a small music hall acting as a side attraction to a medicinal spa. Although visited by 500 people a day at the height of the spa's popularity, by 1687 it had fallen into disrepair. It was restored in 1746 by a local builder, Thomas Rosoman.
