By A.Arrowsmith. from Valor Ecclesiasticus edited by J.Caley and the Rev. J.Hunter c.1817. 15 1/2" x 19 3/8". original hand colouring.

Uncommon. Shows the dioceses of Hereford and Worcester in 1535 as Henry VIII began the process of appropriating the property and revenues of religious institutions after his split with Rome. It should be noted that the Hereford diocese extended as far north as the River Severn at Shrawardine and that of Worcester as far east as Warwick. There is some light offsetting to the right hand side of the map.
