These notes and transcriptions are made from:-
Cary, John: 1815 (6th edn): Cary's New Itinerary: (London)
The copy of the itinerary used in this study is in the Map Collection of Hampshire CC Museums Service, item:-
The copy has been cheaply rebound at some time in its life; and this is falling to pieces. The page size is about 12x19cm.

REMEMBER: Except in the introductory pages, only material relevant to Hampshire has been transcribed, including a few places round the edge of the county which are included as they are useful points on routes; data ignored is NOT indicated by ellipsis.

Marginal notations against each section have been added by us, they are not in the roiginal.

Sections are presented in the order they appear in Cary's book, except where noted.
