Newport with Steedman 1825 overlay

The overlay is John Steedman's 1825 Plan of the Coast from Newport to Craighead. Original at National Library of Scotland. It has been geo-referenced to enable it to be overlaid on present-day mapping.

Use the Steedman opacity slider on the right to see through it.

Additionally, there are 2 sets of labels shown on other plans (RHP30450 - 'plan of the braes, rocks and sea beach at Newport in dispute between William Berry of Tayfield and Robert Dalgliesh of Scotscraig', and RHP30440 - 'plan of Newport identifying various buildings') which used the Steedman plan as a base. These can be toggled on / off by selecting their check boxes on the right. Thses are best viewed on enlarging the map. Just play around with it!
