1814 Newton map of Hampstead, Belsize Park, Primrose Hill, St John's Wood, Chalk Farm & Kilburn


Orientation

This scarce 1814 map covers the area now occupied by Hampstead, Belsize Park, Primrose Hill, St John's Wood & Kilburn (principally the modern London postal codes NW3, NW6 and NW8). The map is orientated towards the north west. The road which runs along the left hand edge of the map is Kilburn High Road (from where it becomes Maida Vale at the bottom of the map) & Shoot Up Hill at the top of the map. The (then) village of Hampstead and Hampstead Heath occupy the top right hand quarter of the map, with all buildings in the village being marked on the map. West Hampstead (then West End) is shown as a hamlet on the left hand side of the map. The road known known as Hampstead High Street, Rosslyn Hill & Haverstock Hill is shown on the right hand side of the map running from Hampstead Village down to the bottom of the map through the Manor of Belsize. Primrose Hill is marked at the bottom of the map, close to the original buildings of Chalk Farm.
