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

  • One Inch Sheet 202 Towcester & District 1899 - published 2003; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84151-598-4

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the southern part of Northamptonshire, centred on Towcester; coverage stretches from Eydon and Woodford Halse eastward to Hanslop and Wolverton, and from Bugbrooke southward to Wiucken and Calverton. There is a small area of Buckinghamshire to the SE. The old Watling Street, the A5, runs through the map, and there is also a long stretch of the Grand Junction Canal. Railways include the Northampton & Banbury Jct, the Great Central, and the East & West Jct railways. Barrie Trinder explains how the lines centred on Towcester came to be the Stratford-on-Avon & Midland Junction Railway in 1909. On the reverse is a map of the centre of Blisworth, 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.
