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 151:

  • One Inch Sheet 151 Welshpool & District 1904-12 - published 2002; intro by Derrick Pratt. ISBN.978-1-84151-394-2

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers that lovely area of the Marches west of Shrewsbury, and the map is almost equally divided between Shropshire and Montgomeryshire or Powys. Coverage stretches from Llanfair Caereinion eastward to Minsterley and the Stiperstones. The River Severn and the Cambrian Railway run through the map, which also shows the much loved Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway. Keen eyed railway historians will also find a stretch of the Shropshire & Montgomery Railway's Breiddon branch, as well as a fragment of the mineral line to Snailbeach. On the reverse we include an extract from Montgomeryshire Sheet 22.10, showing Llanfair Caereinion in 1901.

    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.

  • Montgomeryshire: Berriew, Castle Caereinion, Criggion, Leighton, Llanfair Caereinion, Llangyniew, Manafon, Meifod, Tregynon, Trelystan, Welshpool or Trallwm.
  • Shropshire: Chirbury, Minsterley, Shelve, Westbury, Wollaston, Worthen.
