SHC 1414/8/42; this is
a map of Mortlake, in Surrey, showing the route the watchman (marked
in blue) was supposed to walk each night. It dates from 1824, at a
time when, perhaps, local officials were trying to pin down the duties
of the watchmen more carefully. Reproduced

Why do you think it was necessary
to describe the beat of the watchman so precisely?
Which parts of the town did the watchman concentrate on?
