Badminton Estate

Reference: Badminton Volume 3

‘This noble survey taken of the seignoye of Chrughoel and Tretowre’, Volume 3 of the Badminton collection is one of our most important estate map volumes. Produced in 1587, it contains the survey of the Manors of Crickhowell and Tretower. It is one of the earliest surveys produced in Britain of a whole estate, carried out at a single scale, using a single style and method. It is also interesting as several later manuscript copies were produced in the 18th & 19th centuries.
