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 230:

  • One Inch Sheet 23029 Ammanford & District 1908 - published 2006; intro by Derrick Pratt. ISBN.978-1-84151-860-2

    This Inch to the Mile map, which is centred on Ammanford, is split between Carmarthenshire and Glamorgan, with a small portion of Brecknockshire to the NE. Coverage stretches from Pontyberem station and Middleton Hall eastward to Ystradgynlais, and from Llanarthney (or Llanarthne) southward to Pontardulais. Features include the Swansea Valley and Swansea Canal in the SE corner, part of the Black Mountains in the NE, Mynydd Bettws in the centre, the lower stages of the Central Wales railway. On the reverse we include an extract from Carmarthenshire Sheet 41.15, showing Llandybie in 1905, including St Tybie's church, station, Pant-yr-odyn and quarry to the north.

    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:

  • Brecknockshire: Ystradgynlais.
  • Carmarthenshire: Ammanford, Brynamman, Glanamman, Llanarthney, Llandybie, Llanedy, Llanegwad, Llanfihangel-Aberbythych, Llannon.
  • Glamorgan: Cilybebyll, Llangiwg, Pontardawe, Pontardulais.
