John Speed's 1601 map of Dorsetshire contains place names and an indication of topography but it is the Ordnance Survey of 1811 that first presents a precise arrangement of the geography to compare with later developments. Reviewing a selection of over 70 historic maps from a Tudor town plan to the 1957 Ordnance Survey, this book studies the changes in Weymouth and Portland over the centuries, supported by historic illustrations and archive and modern photographs.
