Local orchards and old maps

I found an image of the 1889 ordnance survey map that shows both the Portabello orchard (see August 4th post) and Mount Pleasant (August 10th post). Proof that there have been orchards on these sites for at least 120 years! Look at the hedgerows we've lost since then too...
