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 313:
One Inch Sheet 313 The Blackmore Vale 1903 - published 2006; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-858-9
This Inch to the Mile map covers the area of north Dorset known as the Blackmore Vale, with smaller portions of Somerset to the NW and Wiltshire to the NE. Coverage stretches from North Wootton and
Folke eastward to Win Green and Tarrant Hinton, and from Shaftesbury southward to Winterborne Stickland. Several small towns are shown: Blandford Forum, Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newtown, Milborne Port.
There are many literary connections, especially with William Barnes and Thomas Hardy (the early chapters of Tess are set here). The area of Wiltshire in the NE corner includes Ferne and Ludwell though no full parishes are
shown. The old Somerset & Dorset railway runs through the map. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the small town of Stalbridge.
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.
