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 58:

  • One Inch Sheet 58 Barrow-in-Furness & Walney Island 1896 - published 2005; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-835-0

    This One Inch to the Mile map is dominated by the great Victorian 'new town' of Barrow. Coverage goes north to Furness Abbey, south to most of Walney Island, while to the east are the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay, as far east as Point of Lune. Features include Roa Island, with its railway; Piel Island; Foulney Island. This map is the ideal companion to the group of six large scale maps we have published for Barrow. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Yarlside and Stank, then an area of largely abandoned iron ore mines.

    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: Aldingham, Barrow-in-Furness, Gleaston, Rampside, Roa Island.
