    The Library of Congress has a remarkable map of William Faden's 1790 map 'The country twenty-five miles round London'.

    The map is centred on London but goes as far as Hertford in the north, Reigate in the south, Windsor in the west and Chelmsford in the east.

    The whole map can be accessed on one web page but the zoom facility allows close-up study of any particular area. I was much impressed!

    This is a really good one, thanks Flook. I'll just have to make a space in my F.History ventures for this one
