Handmade to order
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 37x50 inches (100x125cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in the East Midlands county of Northants are already visible in this old county map. In the top left is a detailed engraving of the city of Northampton, then (and still) the capital of the county. In the bottom right is the city of Peterborough, which used to be part of the county but has since moved into Cambridgeshire.
Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map of Northamptonshire include: Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, Daventry, Brixworth, Brackley, Desborough, Towcester, Raunds, Higham Ferrers, Rothwell, Oundle, Peterborough, Yaxley, Whittlesey, Glinton, Market Deeping, Wittering, Stamford, Crowland and many, many more. But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Northampton or who has Northamptonshire in their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame, or a framed larger print. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
