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 143:

This Inch to the Mile map covers the area south of Grantham, with coverage stretching from Garthorpe eastward to Bourne, and from Market Overton northward to the Grantham outskirts. Railway
features include the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway, the main GNR line, and the Bourne & Sleaford Branch. Other features include Grimsthorpe Park, Buckminster Park, Harlaxton Park. On
the reverse we include maps of the village of Billingborough and of Grimsthorpe, with its castle.
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.
