Here’s another gem from contributor and top Lichfield District Council officer Gareth Thomas. It’s an undated property map of Chasetown, Burntwood and the surrounding area – including the tip of Chasewater, here named Norton Reservoir – in what I think to be about 1850.
There are gems here for all map fans and this is a real beauty. It’s fairly large, so please be patient while it loads. The ownership details listed here are worth it alone, let alone the gorgeous draftsmanship.
Again, huge thanks to Gareth who takes time out to scan these wonders just for readers of the blog.
