Event Navigation

FONAFollowing the AGM at 2pm on Saturday 5th March 2016 Adrian Henstock will present ‘George Sandersons Map of the Country 20 Miles around Mansfield’ at Nottinghamshire Archives.

George Sanderson’s circular 2 ¼ inch map is a masterpiece of cartography which pre-dates the first Ordnance Survey maps. It depicts landscape features – including every field boundary – within an area ranging from Nottingham to Sheffield & Newark to Bakewell. This talk looks at what his extraordinary coloured map can tell us about the local landscape on the cusp of the Georgian and Victorian periods & considers how it was achieved by a small surveyor’s office in Mansfield.
