News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Look on the map and you can see that Sittingbourne is spelt without an e and Faversham is spelt, Feversham, when did the spelling change.

I also noticed the the railway isn't there.

There's more detail on the Cassini 178 map of the Thames Estuary (1:50,000) where the Sheppey component dates from 1/1/1819.  Copyright, so I won't scan it!
