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 18:

  • One Inch Sheet 18 Brampton & District 1903 - published 2008; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84784-186-5

    This early One Inch Ordnance Survey map covers the area from the eastern suburbs of Carlisle eastward to Featherstone Castle and Blenkinsopp Hall. The only town is Brampton but other features include Naworth Park, much of the Alston Branch railway, several of Lord Carlisle's mineral lines, Geltsdale, Glendue Fell, Tindale Fells, stretches of Hadrian's Wall etc. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Wetheral, including Wetheral Abbey, Corby Castle, Great Corby, station, Corby Gates, Holy Trinity church etc. Although most of the One Inch map is in Cumberland, a strip of Northumberland runs down the eastern side.

    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.
