Surrey showroom - Guildford

8 Chertsey Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 4HD T. 01483 338888 E. design@charliekingham.co.uk The publication of Richard Horwood’s 32 plate 26 inch to the mile map from which this plate was completed in 1799 as catalogued by James Howgego in Printed Maps of London c1553-1850. Howgego comments that this is the largest and most important London map of the eighteenth century. There was no comparable map until the first edition of the 25-inch Ordnance Survey in the 1860s. Horwood’s intention was to show every house with its number, but it proved impossible to make the numbering complete as Horwood explains in his explanation. Numbering had begun about 1735, when the practice of identifying a building by describing its location in relation to some other building, eg by, opposite, etc. was recognised as clumsy and inaccurate. In Horwood’s day numbering was by no means universal. Every house was shown, nevertheless, with courts, alleys and vacant spaces away from the street frontage.

Monday to Thursday – 10.00am to 6pm Friday – 10.00am to 5.00pm Saturday – 10.00am to 4.00pm

It is always best to call ahead or make an appointment as the showroom sometimes has to close to allow Charlie and his team to meet the high demand for clients site visits. Please feel free to contact us to arrange appointments outside of these hours if they are inconvenient.
