1762 Holderness Map 

We are also fortunate to be able to display the map drawn for the Earl of Holderness in 1762, showing his estates in Aston and Wales.    This map measures 8 feet by 8 feet,  is currently in the care of Rotherham Archives and will be available for everyone to see on the day.   The Rotherham Clifton Museum and Rotherham Archives will also set up their own display showing their work.
