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 257:

  • One Inch Sheet 257 Romford & SW Essex 1893 - published 2011; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84784-508-5

    This Inch to the Mile map covers east London and SW Essex, with coverage stretching from Plaistow and Wanstead eastward to Billericay, and from Rainham northward to Theydon Bois.

    The map gives a splendid overall picture of the area sometimes known as 'London-in-Essex' with coverage beyond that to Billericay. It also gives useful general coverage to areas well covered by larger scale maps in The Godfrey Edition. On the reverse we include a detailed map nof the village of South Ockendon.

    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.
