The overlays that highlight 17th century London features are approximate and derived from:


A chalk headland on the Kent coast of southeast England. It presents a bold cliff to the sea, and commands views over the Strait of Dover. It is 3 miles (4.8 km) northeast of Dover and 15 miles south of North Foreland. It is the closest point on the British mainland to the European continent at a distance of only 21 miles (34 km).

The map shows the location of the South Foreland lighthouse.
