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 185:

  • One Inch Sheet 185 Central Northants 1906 - published 2005; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84151-760-5

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers a central area of Northamptonshire. Coverage stretches from Staverton and Braunston eastward to Sywell and Great Billing, and from Cold Ashby and Maidwell southward to Nether Heyford. Northampton itself is near the foot of the map, and the only other town shown is Daventry. The traditional end of southern England - Watford Gap - is on the map, which is today famously traversed by the M1. The Grand Junction Canal runs through the map and railways include several now closed around Northampton, and the Weedon & Leamington, and Northampton & Market Harborough lines. Other features include Althorp Park, Overstone Park and Norton Park. On the back we include an extract from Northants Sheet 43.12 and this covers the village of Weedon Beck in more detail; it includes Road Weedon and also the barracks and large Ordnance depot on its branch canal.

    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.
