Map by John Rocque, Cartographer to His Majesty in 1761. It covers Shrivenham and surrounding districts including Bourton and Watchfield.
Actual date of map is not known, but the Wilts and Berks Canal, which was constructed between 1796 and 1810, is not marked on the map.
This map appears to be remarkably similar to SHS Listing No N838
