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 203:

  • One Inch Sheet 203 Bedford & District 1895 - published 2007; intro by Barrie Trinder ISBN.978-1-84784-079-0

    This map is in full colour.

    This Inch to the Mile map, centred on Bedford, is split between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, with a small area of Northants in the NW corner. Coverage stretches from Stoke Goldington and Bradwell eastward to Cardington, and from Harrold southward to Ampthill Park (though Ampthill town is beyond the map). In the SW corner is the area now covered by much of Milton Keynes, but in 1895 Bedford and Newport Pagnell were the only towns on the map. Railways include the Bedford & Northampton line and the Newport Pagnell branch. On the reverse of the Coloured Edition (203a) we include a detailed map of Milton Keynes village in 1898; the uncoloured version (203b) we include an extract from Bedfordshire Sheet 10.07, showing Turvey and Cold Brayfield in detail.

    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.
