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 183:

  • One Inch Sheet 183 Redditch & District 1907 - published 2001; intro by Robert Bearman. ISBN.978-1-84151-257-0

    This One Inch to the Mile map is split between Worcestershire and Warwickshire, covering an area south of the Birmingam conurbation. Coverage stretches from Bromsgrove eastward to Haseley and Hatton House, and from Longbridge southward to Great Alne. Robert Bearman describes this as a hilly area "often referred to as the 'centre of England', lying astride the watershed between the catchment areas of the River Severn to the south and the River Trent to the north". On the reverse we include a good extract from Warwickshire Sheet 31.12 and this covers Henley in Arden in 1903, 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.
