  • Hampshire Sheet 62.03 Fordingbridge 1896 - published 1997; introduction by Alan Godfrey. ISBN 978-0-85054-884-6

    This detailed map covers the little town of Fordingbridge, whose population had scarcely risen during the 19th century and stood at 3,162 in 1901 (though many of these lived outside the town itself). Our map covers the town centre and extends west to the station, Ashford Vineyard and Perry Farm. Features include Farinaceous Food Factory, Packham House, Oaklands, Parsonage Farm, High Street, Market Place, Town Mill, Salisbury Street, Bridge Street, Workhouse, brewery, Horseport, Burgate House. On the reverse we include a small extract from sheet 62.07 and this extends coverage south to the church. A directory of 1899 is also included. Surprisingly Fordingbridge had its own small slum, where tenements were "barely habitable, and the occupiers the 'scum' of the parish". Fordingbridge is sometimes thought to be the Silverbridge of Trollope's Barchester novels.
