This old map of Bristol in 1750 is another masterpiece created by John Rocque, who surveyed, drew and published this map.

Around the edge of the map are 10 engravings of famous Bristol landmarks - or at least, they were important landmarks in 1750! If you've ever wanted to see the Exchange of Bristol from all four elevations in 1750, this is the map for you...

The rivers, wharfs and quays take centre stage in this map. The Avon and Frome (or Froom back then!) rivers are clearly visible, as is Wapping. Queen's Square (which has since lost its possessive) dominates central Bristol.

Brandon Hill is here - but in 1750 it was surrounded by fields still! Many parts of central Bristol like Kingsdown and Lewin's Mead are here - but in 1750 they were actually meads and downs!

This is a lovely map from a time when many of Bristol's historic streets had already been laid down, but the town itself was still quite small and rural.
