Bath, Marshfield & The Vale of Avon 1912 - England Sheet 265
This folded map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is produced by Alan Godfrey and covers an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles. It shows railways, roads and canals, and gives a broad view of a wider area. It also includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
This Inch to the Mile map covers the area around and to the north and east of Bath, and is fairly evenly split between Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. Coverage stretches from Oldland and Mangotsfield eastward to Chippenham, and from Old Sodbury southward to Melksham. Apart from the historic city of Bath, the celebrated villages of Lacock and Castle Combe are also included, and the smaller towns of Corsham, Chippenham and Melksham. On the reverse is a detailed map of the little town of Marshfield. For transport historians, the map includes sections of the MR Bath-Westerleigh line, Box tunnel and the GWR main line, plus the industrial tramways around Corsham.
