Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
The overlays that highlight 17th century London features are approximate and derived from:
Puckeridge, a village in Hertfordshire six and a half miles N.N.E, of Ware.
STANDON and PUCKERIDGE [http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=538630&...]were once separate but are now one settlement at the centre of East Herts and near the Roman crossroads of Ermine Street and Stane Street......The fact that Puckeridge was once an important coaching stop is evident still today in the arches in the High Street which used to lead to stable yards. Diarist Samuel Pepys took advantage of its many inns, including the Falcon in 1662. He wrote: 'The way about Puckeridge very bad, and my wife, in the very last dirty place of all, got a fall, but no hurt, though some dirt.'
