This old, full colour and wonderful map shows the county of Sussex as it was in 1829, before it was split up into West, East and Mid Sussex. Published in Greenwood's Atlas of England & Wales and engraved by J & C Walker, this is one of the finest old county maps from the 1800s.
This map looks great at all sizes: 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 56x70 inches (140x180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (51x40.5cm) version of this map.
If you’re looking for something slightly different, another option would be this amazing map of the same area by Joan Blaeu in 1665.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in Sussex are already visible in this map. Chichester - the capital of West Sussex today - was still the capital of Sussex back then. There's a lovely and highly detailed engraving of Chichester Cathedral in the bottom right corner.
Some of the West Sussex, Mid Sussex and East Sussex towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map include: Worthing, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton (then just called Hampton), Horsham, Cuckfield (Haywards Heath), East Grinstead, Crawley, Hastings, Brighton, Hove, Bexhill, Cuckmere Haven, Seaford, Crowborough, Uckfield, Lewes, Arundel, Petworth, Amberley, Lewes, Ditchling, Ashdown Forest, Worth, Ardingly, Rye, Shoreham and many more.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!
Somewhat unusually, this map also includes polling locations for county elections, parishes, churches, windmills, watermills, railways and much more.This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone from Sussex or who has Sussex in their heart.
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

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.
