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 263:

  • One Inch Sheet 263 Cardiff & District 1890 - published 1999; intro by John Davies. ISBN.978-1-84151-123-8

    At the start of 2006 Cardiff remains a major gap in our series of large scale maps, but we hope to start publishing maps for the city this year. In the meantime this Inch to the Mile map of the area has proved very popular, for it covers the area around Cardiff. Coverage stretches from Peterston super Ely eastward to St Mellons, and from Llanishen southward to Barry, with Cardiff itself near the centre of the map. Across the Seven Estuary a fragment of Somerset is visible, with Flat Holm in the middle of the sea. On the reverse we include an extract from Glamorgan Sheet 37.15, showing the village of Llanishen in detail, including St Isan's church and station, and including a 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.
