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 59 Lancaster & District 1896 - published 2008; intro by Paul Hindle. ISBN.978-1-84784-162-9

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the area around Lancaster and Morecambe, with coverage extending eastward to High Bentham, and from Carnforth southward to Cockersand Abbey. Lancaster is the largest town but other features include Heysham (before the harbour was built), the Lune valley and the fells east of Lancaster. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Glasson and Conder Green, including Glasson Dock and its railway.

    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.
