Montgomery – an old map by John Speed


An Old Map of Montgomery by John Speed

Montgomeryshire was predominantly a pastoral county extending from the fertile Shropshire plain in the East to the mountain regions in the West. The ancient oak forests and good pastures of cattle, horses and sheep, together with lush grasslands justified the counties reputation as the paradise of Wales. However, during the sixteenth century, Montgomery suffered the same problems of deforestation and enclosure as the rest of the country. The county had deposits of iron ore, which helped supplement the earnings of the farming economy. A fascinating document that brings Montgomery history to life.
