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 327:
One Inch Sheet 327 Beaminster, Bridport & West Dorset 1905 - published 2010; intro by Tony Painter. ISBN.978-1-84784-393-7
This One Inch to the Mile map covers the area of West Dorset from Maiden Newton westward to Charmouth, and from Evershot southward to Abbotsbury.
Features include the towns of Bridport, Maiden Newton and Beaminster, including the railway to Bridport, and a stretch of the Dorset coast. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the small town of Beaminster, Hardy's Emminster, where features include St Mary's church, Manor House, Holy Trinity church, Shortmoor, Newtown, Whatley Farm, Market Place, and the town centre shown in detail with individual buildings neatly delineated.
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.
