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 272:

  • One Inch Sheet 272 The Medway Towns 1893 - published 2003; intro by Tony Painter. ISBN.978-1-84151-548-9

It covers the Medway from Sheerness up to Snodland. The towns on the map are Rochester, Chatham, Sheerness, Sittingbourne and Milton. Transport historians will be interested in the Hundred of Hoo line to Port Victoria. On the reverse is a detailed map of Minster.
