Event Information

In 1784 Lt. Col. Mark Wood drew a detailed map of the European settlement in Calcutta. Several streets and buildings and other features of the landscape that Mark Wood’s map depict, still survive, albeit in different names. In this heritage walk we will retrace the steps of Lt. Col. Mark Wood to explore streets and identify buildings depicted in this 1784 map of European Calcutta. While doing this, the explorers will learn about the history of the city between 1757 and 1807, a 50 year period following the Battle of Plassey when Calcutta emerged as the “Second City of the British Empire”.
We will end the walk with tea and snacks at Kaka Tea, a popular food joint in the area.

Start Point: In front of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Netaji Subhas Road, BBD Bagh, Kolkata, India
