Birmingham & District 1910 - England Sheet 168
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 One Inch to the Mile map is centred on Birmingham; part of the Black Country lies to the west, while eastward we find more rural Warwickshire. We have published a very good range of large scale, detailed maps for Birmingham and its environs, and this smaller scale map is an excellent companion to them, helping to put them into context. Coverage stretches from Halesowen and Rowley Regis eastward to Shustoke and Meriden, and from Sutton Coldfield southward to Solihull. On the back we include an extract from Warwickshire Sheet 19.03, showing the village of Olton in detail in 1903.
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. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
