Political meetings mapper: Chartist walking tour sites

Here's a plan of the route we're taking on our tour of Chartist pubs in London on 21 September, as part of my British Library Labs project.


It's plotted on Richard Harwood's map of 1799, which is obviously 40 years out of date (the big fields between St Pancras and Euston/Bloomsbury were all built on by then, as you can see from some of the pin-points of more venues on them.


Participants will get a booklet with lots more information about the sites, which I will then add to the new website for the Political Meetings Mapper project.
