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 265:
One Inch Sheet 265 Bath, Marshfield & the Vale of Avon - published 2006; intro by Tony Painter. ISBN.978-1-84151-888-6
This Inch to the Mile map covers the area around and to the north and east of Bath, and is fairly evenly split between Gloucestershire,
Somerset and Wiltshire. Coverage stretches from Oldland and Mangotsfield eastward to Chippenham, and from Old Sodbury southward to Melksham.
Apart from the historic city of Bath, the celebrated villages of Lacock and Castle Combe are also included, and the smaller towns of Corsham, Chippenham and Melksham. On the reverse is a detailed map of
the little town of Marshfield. For transport historians, the map includes sections of the MR Bath-Westerliegh line, Box tunnel and the GWR main line, plus the industrial tramways around Corsham.
