Here are the details of maps for Reeth:
Yorkshire Sheet 37.15 Reeth & Grinton 1910 - published 2006; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN 1-84151-871-9
This detailed map covers the tiny town - really a village - of Reeth, the 'capital' of Swaledale. By 1910 the lead-mining industry
in Swaledale and Arkengarthdale was all but dead and Reeth was relying on tourism for its living. Yet there were still plans, never
brought to fruition, for a railway from Richmond. Our map covers this little town, and on the reverse we extend coverage south to include
Fremington, incl Draycot Hall, and Grinton, with its fine church, the 'cathedral of the dale'. The only mine shown here is the Fremington
Edge Chert Quarry, but enough of the moors are included to give some of the atmosphere of the place. A directory of Reeth in 1905 is also included.
And here is an index map showing the areas covered.
You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop.

Maps in the Godfrey Edition are taken from the 25 inch to the mile map and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile.
