Chelmsford by John Walker
Whilst writing the publication about the famous Chelmsford Ballad, we were researching the location of the 'Tenter Ground' mentioned in the Ballad. There is a famous map of Chelmsford by John Walker, dated 1591. Just in case you haven't seen it, here it is. If you click on it, you will be confronted with the full map, but don't think of doing so unless you are keen on detail or you have broadband. It is a fascinating map with a wonderful way of showing you how chelmsford must have looked on those days.
