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 214:

  • One Inch Sheet 214 The Black Mountains 1908 - published 2003; intro by Edward Parry. ISBN.978-1-84151-480-2

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the border area between Brecknockshire and Herefordshire, with a spur of Monmouthshire intruding from the south. Coverage stretches from Llanhamlach eastward to Dulas, and from Glasbury southward to Pen Cerig-calch and Partrishow. Edward Parry describes this as classic border territory, with the Black Mountains at the heart of the map. The finest building on the map is the ruined Llanthony priory in the lovely Honddu valley. A few railways - the Cambrian's Mid Wales line, the Brecon & Merthyr Railway - run west of the mountains. The only town on the map is Talgarth and on the reverse we include a large-scale, detailed map of this, showing St Gwendoline's church, Market Hall, station, High Street, and the buildings that go to make up a small town centre.

    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:
