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 Sheet 88:

  • One Inch Sheet 88 Doncaster & the Isle of Axholme 1894 - published 2001; introd by Melvyn Jones. ISBN.978-1-84151-293-8

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Doncaster eastward to Owston and the River Trent, and from Stainforth southward to Tickhill. The map is split between South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, with a portion of Nottinghamshire also appearing. Doncaster is much the largest place on the map, but Tickhill (at the foot of the map) and Epworth are also given town status by the OS. Hatfield Moors lies in the centre of the map and the Isle of Axholme further east. This is a low lying area and Melvyn Jones tells us that "in these flatlands the smallest of swells in the terrain have provided footholds for permanent settlements". On the reverse we include a detailed map of Finningley, 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.
