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 280:

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Wells and Shepton Mallet northward to Chew Stoke and westward to Axbridge and Wavering Down. It covers most of the Mendip Hills area. Features include the towns of Axbridge, Shepton Mallet and Wells, the GWR Cheddar Valley Branch, stretches of the Somerset & Dorset and North Somerset Railways, part of the Somerset coalfield, etc. On the reverse we include a more detailed map of Chilcompton.

    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.
