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 Inch to the Mile map covers south London and much of north Surrey, with coverage extending from Westminster Bridge southward to Croydon, Sutton and Ewell, and from West Molesey and Hampton eastward to Beckenham and Lewisham.

    The map gives a splendid overall picture of London as it sprawls into Surrey and Middlesex, with a complex network of railways. It also gives useful general coverage to areas well covered by larger scale maps in The Godfrey Edition. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Claygate.

    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. With such a busy area the list is necessarily selective. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
