Map of Cornwall 1699

I was rummaging through the bookshelves in the spare room in my parent's house yesterday, in an attempt to find soemthing to read, when I found a boxed set of Joel Gascoyne's Map of Cornwall, which was produced in 1699 for Lord Robartes.

It's at a scale of 1 inch to 1 mile so has lots of detail and covers the whole county on half a dozen large sheets. I've borrowed the maps for that cover the Eastern half of the county as a potential basis for a campaign map, which would be perfect for my 1644 solo campaign.


  1. Looks like the project is starting to gather legs; will be watching with interest.

  2. It will be really interesting to see what you make of the Warlord plastics :)

  3. Does my home town of Newquay appear or is it still 'Towan'
