A Plan of several Roads between Lord Cardigan's Corner on Black Heath, and Woolwich Warren.
1760 - c.1760. 270 x 560mm. Some faint toning. An odd sketch map, orientated with north to the top, comparing the different routes from Lord Cardigan's Corner, on the edge of Greenwich Park, through Charleton to Woolwich Warren, the old name for the Royal Arsenal. The roads, crossing Blackheath and Woolwich Common, are now Shooters Hill Road (A2 and A207) from the A205 to Greenwich Park, the A205 from Shooters Hill Road down to Woolwich, and the B210 through Charlton. 'Lord Cardigan's Corner' was Park Corner House, an addition to Montague House, the Earl of Cardigan's estate on on the edge of Greenwich Park. It would seems this map was drawn for his benefit. It appears the map is unfinished: a little vignette ship sits in the middle of blank space, roughly where the Thames would be.
