The route


The route marked with the green line in the map above is a very close approximation of the 271-mile route which Lapenotiere would have covered in a series of post-chaise carriages on his journey of 4th to 6th November 1805. The route has been researched using 19th century maps and coaching manuals. Zoom in to see where the historic route differed from the A-roads, bridges and junctions of today.
