Map of Tyburn (in 1746)

Subject

Tyburn

Description

This map, charted in 1746 as part of a larger map containing London, Westminster, and Southwark, marks the location of Tyburn gallows. The site is marked with a red dot at the top left corner of the map, at the edge of Hyde Park. Because it is located so far from medieval London's walls, the site is difficult to find on any maps before the 1700s.
