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

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Whitbeck, Silecroft and Millom eastward to Cartmel, and from Dalton in Furness and Baycliff northward to High Nibthwaite and the southern end of Coniston Water and Windermere. The Duddon Sands and Cartmel Sands intrude onto the landscape, while to the north are the Furness Fells, and to the NW Bootle Fell. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Cartmel, including the Priory Church, race course, and Town End; a directory for Cartmel is also included.

    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.
