BILSTON 1901 - STAFFORDSHIRE SHEET 62.16b
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of this detailed map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1884 version, taken from the OS First Edition, is in colour.
Most of the town of Bilston is covered on the map. Other features on the 1884 map include Bankfield Iron Works, Bradley Iron & Tin Works, Bradley Field Iron Works, Regent Iron Works, Bradley Lodge Colliery, Fiery Holes, Barbor's Field Furnaces, Capponfield Iron Works, Factory Iron Works, Bilston Quarries, Bilston Foundry, Bovereux Furnaces (disused), The Lune, Mount Pleasant area, town centre with individual buildings shown, tramway, Birmingham Canal, GWR railway with station, GWR (OWW Branch) with station, Broad Lanes Colliery, Finneywell Colliery, Lunt Colliery, Town Hall, Market Place etc.
The 1901 map covers the same area at a later stage, showing some expansion of the town but many of the factories now disused. A very large number of Old Coal Shafts are shown.
The map links up with Staffordshire sheets 62.12 Willenhall SW to the north, 62.15 Ettingshall to the west, 63.13 Darlaston to the east, 67.04 Bradley to the south.
