Greenwood's Map of London was produced in 1827 at eight inches to the mile. If you enjoy browsing maps there's a version on an old but "new to me" site available from Bath Spa University. The map covers London and surroundings and stretches out to Earls Court in the West, to the River Lea and Greenwich in the East, Highgate to the North and to the South, Camberwell.
