Blaeu map of Bonnington

Year: 1654

This map was published in 1654 by Joan Blaeu, a Dutch cartographer born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu. It was based on the first detailed map of Lanarkshire created by Timothy Pont (in 1596).

The detail of this map is amazing especially in relation to Bonnington. The fence shown on the map is the Park Pale.
