|Coal and Wine Tax Posts - Maps|
|This 'map' was created by putting all the Grid Refs of the original positions of the posts into a spreadsheet. (Plus 'Post 63' now in the Guildhall Museum).|
If you happen to have the excellent Fugawi version of the OS Landranger maps,
you can download this |
CSV file for Posts 1 to 217.
Import this into Fugawi as a Route and tell it that the first field is UK Ordnance Survey (the other fields will be ignored).
It will plot them all prettily for you.
|Posts 73 - 82 or the original locations thereof plus Poyle Pump plotted on a map from OpenStreetMap|

As at 2004 October these links do not seem to work properly - even though they are in exactly the format that Streetmap specifies. The links still work but show a much larger area.
When such a map displays you can click on the icon to see the Landranger style map.
(On the Landranger URL's I see an extra dn= parameter which probably stands for Day Number and looks like a device to make maps at this scale unlinkable - maybe because the OS are asking too much in licence fees.)
