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 Inch to the Mile map covers the Forest of Rossendale area, a fascinating stretch of east Lancashire stretching from Blackburn eastward to the county boundary and across to Todmorden, and from the southern outskirts of Burnley southward to Rochdale. Other towns include Accrington, Darwen, Bacup, Ramsbottom and Haslingden, and town status is also given by the OS to Rawtenstall, Lower Darwen, Great Harwood, Clayton le Moors, and Rishton. Railways, many of them now closed, run through the valleys to join these together. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Turton Bottom and Chapeltown. Many of the towns are featured on large scale maps in our series, and this fascinating map helps put them into context.

    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.
