Accuracy was not a strong point of maps before the Nineteenth Century.This map is a cross between a sketch map and a picture. Individual buildings are drawn in and accurate scale is non-existent. St Mary’s Church can be next to the Market Square in the centre of the town.It does give an idea of the size of Dover at this time with the town still concentrated in the area enclosed by the mediaeval town walls. The town is starting to expand along Biggin Street towards Charlton (which can just be made out as a church and a couple of buildings close to the left hand edge of the map). Buildings also extend along Snargate Street and around the harbour.One thing that is very noticeable are how close the fields and orchards are to the town.
