This, the first reasonably accurate large scale map of Hadleigh and Thundersley, was part of an Essex wide map drawn up by John Chapman and Peter André at 2 inches to the mile in 1777.

The attached map and those for the rest of Essex can be obtained online from the Spanish Virtual Library of Bibliographical Heritage.
