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 Sheets 49:

  • One Inch Sheet 49 Kirkby Lonsdale & District 1876 - published 2003; intro by Paul Hindle. ISBN.978-1-84151-567-0

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers southern Westmorland and smaller portions of Lancashire. Coverage stretches from Grange eastward to Kirkby Lonsdale and the slopes of Gragareth, crossing the Lune and Kent valleys; and from Oxenholme station southward to just north of Carnforth. On the reverse is a detailed map of the village of Beetham.

    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.

  • Lancashire: Grange over Sands, Lindale, Tunstall, Warton, Whittington.
  • Westmorland: Beetham, Burton in Kendal, Heversham, Kirkby Lonsdale, Milnthorpe.
