The area of Cricklepit Mill in the 18th century

The pair of views shows the growth of this industrial area outside the walls and can be compared with the earlier and later views of the same area. To the left is its appearance in 1700, to the right c. 1800. The mill is the long building at the centre of each view.

By 1700 houses had spread over much of this area; by 1800 further buildings had been added to the side of the mill, creating a densely packed industrial scene.
