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 197:

  • One Inch Sheet 197 Hay on Wye & District 1908 - published 2006; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84151-940-5

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the area around and to the north of Hay on Wye. Coverage stretches from Crickadarn eastward to Staunton on Wye, and from Hay and Cusop northward to Kington. Transport features include the Golden Valley Branch, Hereford Hay & Brecon line, Eardisley Branch, and a stretch of the New Radnor Extension through Kington. Author Barrie Trinder describes the map as "a classic borderland region, the boundary between highlanders and lowlanders, between the Welsh and English languages, between a landscape of nucleated villages and one of scattered hamlets and farms, where families traditionally took their names from their properties". On the reverse we include a detailed map of Hay on Wye, where features shown include the Castle, St Mary's church, Poor Law Institution, Broad Street, Church Street and town centre (but not the station).

    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.
