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 81 & 82:

  • One Inch Sheet 81/82 South Holderness 1905 - published 2003; intro by David Neave. ISBN.978-1-84151-523-6

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers the southern end of Holderness, described by Philip Larkin as "lonelier and lonelier, and after that the birds and lights of Spurn Head, and after that the sea". The map does not quite capture the tip of Spurn Head but the atmosphere of Holderness is here. The map captures the area from Marfleet eastward to the coast, and southward to Habrough on the Lincolnshire side of the Humber. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the small but ancient town of Hedon, complete with directory.

    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.
