Margaret Mills took as her subject today, a totally incompetent map maker from Ilford named, Henry Joist.

Dating from around 1651, were you to follow the directions on his maps, you would be very fortunate indeed if you ever arrived at your intended destination.

See you again in a couple of weeks,
