An 1840s Map of Rutland

We have been fortunate in some of our ‘finds’ over the last fifty years. They include a remarkable set of County maps, printed in the 1840s and beautifully illustrated, which are a fascinating snapshot of England almost two hundred years ago. It was the age of railway expansion and in this map (of what was Rutlandshire and is now Rutland), the dark solid line is the railway from Leicester to Peterborough with stations at Whissendine, Ashwell, Oakham, Manton, South Luffenham and Ketton.
