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

  • One Inch Sheet 51 Lower Wensleydale 1904 - published 2005; intro by Susan Neave. ISBN.978-1-84151-705-6

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers the lovely stretch of lower Wensleydale from Aysgarth eastward to Bedale and Masham; it also includes Coverdale, Colsterdale and Nidderdale down to Ramsgill. At the western end of the map are parts of Bishopdale and the Walden valley. Between these dales are the moors: Fountains Earth Moor, Dallowgill Moor, Masham Moor, Riggs Moor, Carlton Moor, North Moor and others. Other items of note include the Nidd Valley Railway, before part of upper Nidderdale was flooded by a reservoir. On the reverse we include a map of Aysgarth, from Aysgarth village to Aysgarth Force, and including the station, St Andrew's church and Wensleydale Sanatorium. A directory for Aysgarth 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.
