The three historic parishes of Hampstead, St Giles & St George and St Pancras are unusually well mapped. This talk looks at the different maps produced during two centuries, ranging from St Pancras' magnificent survey of 1803, to the Hampstead railway map of 1866, through to the electricity grid maps that St Pancras produced in the 1890s. We look at the maps and also behind them - why were they made, and what do they tell us about 18th and 19th century life?
This talk is based on Simon Morris’s research for the Camden section in the London Topographical Society's forthcoming catalogue of London Parish Maps.
