Explore Horwood’s Plan

A large number of pages on this site put Richard Horwood’s PLAN of the Cities of LONDON and WESTMINSTER the Borough of SOUTHWARK, and PARTS adjoining Shewing every HOUSE into conversation with other means of organising the city.  The version below, though, is presented so that the Plan can be explored unmediated.  If the interface is unclear, more information on the controls can be found here.  The site also includes an introduction to the Plan, some biographical information about Horwood and details about how the digital map was made.  For finding specific locations, flipping between Horwood’s Plan and modern maps using the layer control in the top right corner can be useful; another very helpful source for locating smaller streets is John Lockie’s invaluable Topography of London (1810).
