Buckingham & District 1887 - England Sheet 219
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 map covers the area around and to the south of Buckingham, with coverage stretching from Middleton Stoney eastward to Whaddon, and from Stowe House southward to Quainton. Apart from Buckingham, Bicester, Brackley and Winslow are also included. Verney Junction is near the centre of the map, including the LNWR line to Brackley. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Stowe House in 1938, by which time it was Stowe School.
