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 142:

  • One Inch Sheet 142a Melton Mowbray & District 1898 - Coloured Edition - published 2008; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84784-128-5
  • One Inch Sheet 142b Melton Mowbray & District 1912 - published 2002; intro by John Gough. ISBN.978-1-84151-472-7

    This One Inch to the Mile map straddles the border between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, with Melton Mowbray the one significant town. Coverage stretches from the eastern outskirts of Loughborough eastward to Stonesby, and from Barkestone southward to Burton Lazars. Railways include the Nottingham & Melton Mowbray line through Old Dalby (latterly a test track), the Holwell Branch, and the GNR's Waltham Branch.

    The 1898 version is from the very early coloured edition; it has a map of Barrow upon Soar on the reverse. The 1912 version is uncoloured; it includes a map of Scalford on the reverse, complete with directory.

    It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you might find it useful if we here list the majority of the principal villages and church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
