Presented by Adrian Henstock.

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.
