This engraving, dating from c.1709-20, was issued as part of volume III of a four-volume edition of ‘Britannia Illustrata’, published by Joseph Smith in 1724. The artist and engraver of this work are unknown. From 1709 ‘Britannia Illustrata’ was expanded by various booksellers and additional plates by other artists were inserted. Engraver Henry Hulsburgh was involved in updating architecture in existing plates and engraver and draughtsman John Harris produced some further architectural plates and bird's-eye views for later editions. However, generally the artists who worked on plates added after the first 1707 publication are unknown.
