The map displays the routes of the Great Northern Railway, the Northampton and Peterborough Railway, the Huntingdon and Ely Railway, the St Ives and Wisbeach Railway and the St Ives and Cambridge Railway through the County of Huntingdonshire in 1848. It is also interesting to note the locations of Whittlesea Mere and Ramsey Mere both have been long since drained. Maps illustrating the location of the meres are very hard to come by so we include a large scale section of the map below for those interested in the subject.
