|Content Description||This series of maps and plans forms part of the 6th Deposit of the Newcastle (Clumber) Collection. It ranges in date from 1765-1968, but relates predominantly to the first half of the 20th century, there being very few earlier items.|
The series consists of around 1079 items, which are arranged by type into hand drawn/manuscript maps and plans, Ordnance Survey maps, and surveys and terriers. They cover Newcastle estates across England, including those in the counties of Berkshire, Derbyshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Kent, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Somerset, Wiltshire, and Yorkshire. Nottinghamshire is by far the most heavily represented county, whilst there is relatively little material covering Berkshire, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Kent, and Somerset.
On the whole, the earliest maps tend to be original or copied enclosure maps for various Nottinghamshire parishes, whilst the 20th century maps and plans mostly show relatively small areas of land, many of which had been parcelled up for sale purposes. In many cases these 20th century maps and plans chart the urban development of the towns or cities featured, most notably those covering the areas of Basford and Worksop in Nottinghamshire.
Also included within this series is the Newark Manor Survey of 1912, and around 26 terriers covering the counties of Nottinghamshire, Dorset, Surrey, and Wiltshire.
