A rare and very interesting map of the existing and proposed roads between Exeter and Plymouth including the planned Turnpike following closely the route of today's A38. A turnpike road is defined as a road on which a turnpike trust was authorized by Act of Parliament to charge tolls to pay for the road's construction, repair, or both. The first turnpike trust to be established in Devon was Exeter Turnpike Trust in 1753, and about twenty other trusts were operating by 1765, in most cases centred on particular towns. This unusual map gives great detail of proposed improvements and the adjacent countryside, at a scale of almost one inch to a mile, including the exact measurements of each section. Plymouth, Ashburton and Exeter Trusts are itemised. Presumably published in an official report we can find to evidence of other examples on COPAC.
