Many of the towns, villages and cities in Sussex are already visible in this map. Colchester - the capital of West Sussex today - was the capital of Sussex back then. There's a lovely detailed image of Colchester as it was in 1611 in the top left corner.
Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map include: East Grinstead, Crawley, Hastings, Brighton, Arundel, Petworth, Amberley, Lewes, Ditchling, Ashdown Forest, Worth, Ardingly, Rye, Shoreham and 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!
The coat of arms of the Monarch of the United Kingdom appears in the top right, along with the Monarch's motto Dieu et mon droit - God and my right.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Sussex or who has Sussex 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.

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.
