Old Ordnance Survey Inch to the Mile Maps

  • These maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here is information about Sheet 6:

  • One Inch Sheet 6 Alnwick & District 1901 - published 2000; intro by John Griffiths. ISBN.978-1-84151-224-2

    This Inch to the Mile map covers an area of north Northumberland centred on Alnwick. Coverage stretches from Lilburn Tower and Embleton southward to Warkworth. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the seaside village of Alnmouth, together with a directory. For transport historians the Coldstream branch, running north from Alnwick, will be of special interest.

    It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
