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 168:

  • One Inch Sheet 168 Birmingham & District 1910 - published 2004; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-726-1

    This One Inch to the Mile map is centred on Birmingham; part of the Black Country lies to the west, while eastward we find more rural Warwickshire. We have published a very good range of large scale, detailed maps for Birmingham and its environs, and this smaller scale map is an excellent companion to them, helping to put them into context. Coverage stretches from Halesowen and Rowley Regis eastward to Shustoke and Meriden, and from Sutton Coldfield southward to Solihull. On the back we include an extract from Warwickshire Sheet 19.03, showing the village of Olton in detail in 1903.

    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.
