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 153:

  • One Inch Sheet 153 Wolverhampton & Ironbridge 1898 - published 2001; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84151-223-5

    This One Inch to the Mile map is split between Shropshire and Staffordshire. Coverage stretches across a busy area, from Oakengates and Dawley eastward to Wednesfield, and from Lilleshall and Teddesley Park southward to Wolverhampton. The latter, of course, is much the largest town on the map, which also covers several of the small towns and urban villages that now make up Telford, including Ironbridge, Coalport and Hadley. On the reverse is an extract from Staffordshire Sheet 50.03, covering the centre of Penkridge in detail, complete with a short commercial directory.

    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.
