Map 1: A Plan of Manchester and Salford, c.1650

Panel in John Berry's Plan of the Towns of Manchester & Salford. Published by John Berry, grocer, at the New Tea Warehouse, Manchester, 1750.

 

The map shows the Manchester as it was at the time of the Civil War, when its population was somewhere between 5,000 and 10,000 people. The Collegiate Church (now Manchester Cathedral) at the centre of the medieval street layout. This copy has been coloured at a later date.
