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 256:

  • One Inch Sheet 256 North London 1902-13 - published 2002; intro by Pamela Taylor. ISBN.978-1-84151-380-5

    We have published well over 200 highly detailed maps for London and Middlesex. This Inch to the Mile map is an excellent accompaniment to the series, covering a much broader area but in less detail, and so showing the growing villages of north London and Middlesex in context. Coverage extends from Watford eastward to Chingford and Stratford, and from Enfield southward to the City of London. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Elstree in 1895.

    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. Please bear in mind we have a very large range of maps for London.
