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 237:

  • One Inch Sheet 237 Thame & District 1886 - published 2000; intro by Elizabeth Lockwood. ISBN.978-1-84151-200-6

    This map, which is split between Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, covers the area from Cowley eastward to the west edge of Aylesbury, and from Chinnor northward to Ludgershall. The towns on the map are Thame and Princes Risborough. Of the great estates the Rothschild's Waddesdon is the most celebrated on the map but Elizabeth Lockwood also reminds us of Waterperry House, Horsendon House and Notley Abbey. Railways include the Chinnor branch, the long-closed Thame-Oxford route and the line from Aylesbury to Quainton Road. At the west of the map villages lilke Cowley and Headington show the influence of nearby Oxford.
