Cardiff & District 1890 - Wales Sheet 263
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 small scale Inch to the Mile complements our series of more detailed maps for Cardiff and its environs. Coverage stretches from Peterston super Ely eastward to St Mellons, and from Llanishen southward to Barry, with Cardiff itself near the centre of the map. Across the Seven Estuary a fragment of Somerset is visible, with Flat Holm in the middle of the sea. On the reverse we include an extract from Glamorgan Sheet 37.15, showing the village of Llanishen in detail, including St Isan's church and station, and including a directory.
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.
