Thomsons Map of Nethertown

Year: 1832

Thomson map of Netherton and surrounding areas from 1832.

The map shows more detail than Forest’s map of 1816, particularly in respect of roads. It also shows that Netherton had become the main settlement at the time.

John Thomson (1777-c1840) was a Scottish cartographer from Edinburgh, celebrated for his 1817 New General Atlas.
