The Map

Medieval Map of Area Southeast of Branston, UK

The map is oriented 45 degrees from north and appears to show Warren Lane – the medieval road between Burton and Litchfield – two fords across the river Trent, and two towns, Branston and Barton-upon-Needwood.

Back of manuscript

The legend on the left is scarcely legible, but appears to read:
tha [ist in?] Burton
I (illegible -- presumably a place name)
II (illegible)
III (illegible)
IV (illegible)

The parcels are clearly marked on the map.
