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

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Bromley eastward to Gravesend and from Erith southward to Halsted. The major towns are Bromley, Dartford, Gravesend and Woolwich. Numerous railways are shown, including the LCDR Gravesend Branch. North of the Thames a small portion of Essex around Tilbury and Grays is shown. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the centre of Betsham, including Southfleet station.

    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.
