The following maps are only a selection of those held at Bedfordshire and Luton Archives and Records Service.

The map below [X1/97/4] was made in 1718 and is a photograph of the original [L33/286]. The surveyor was Edward Laurence and the work was undertaken for the Duke of Kent as it showed the lands of his manors in Flitton and Silsoe. The map also shows the villages of Silsoe, Greenfield and Pulloxhill. To see a larger version, please click on the image.
