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

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers a border area divided between Montgomeryshire and Shropshire, with a small area of Radnorshire included to the SW. Coverage stretches from Newtown eastward to Norbury and Lydbury North, and from Montgomery itself southward to Clun. This is hilly country, and hills include Cilfaesty Hill, Bryn Gydfa, Black Mountain, Corndon Hill. Apart from Newtown, the towns are tiny affairs: Clun, Montgomery, Bishops Castle with its celebrated railway. On the reverse we include a large scale, detailed map of Montgomery or Trefaldwyn.

    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.
