Maps and Walks around the Ancient Manor

Maps of the Manor

During his lifetime, Andrew Barnett, a founder member of SLHS, meticulously plotted the boundaries of Sedgley Manor's nine villages based on the 1844 Tithe Survey. In 1990, Tom Bennett, a longtime friend, produced a sketch map showing the outer limits of the Manor and in 1991 Ron Baker refined this map.

Finally in 1996 Ron Baker drew the classic map of the Ancient Manor of Sedgley, again based on Andrew's research. For clarification some more recent churches and roads were added, but the boundaries date from the original Survey.

Ron Baker's map is reproduced below.

If you are not familiar with the Manor's key position in the Black Country, check out the map on The Black Country Society's website.
