to market towns
Market towns are shown on Norden's map by a symbol having
several buildings around a central dot and circle; the
colourist has made most of these red.

Images of the areas around market towns, some other towns, and a couple of country areas, are listed below. The list includes the market towns identified by Norden, ignoring a couple of missing or mistaken colourings by the colourist; plus other towns of interest to Hampshire CC Museums Service, where we have museums for instance; plus a couple of country areas, just to see what they look like. From the town image it is possible to look at the same detail from other maps, other dates ...
