CHESTER-LE-STREET 1915 - DURHAM SHEET 13.09B
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 map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1902-11 map is taken from the interesting 'Inland Revenue Special Edition', a survey of 1902 but with partial revision to 1911.
The maps cover the village of Acock's Green, east of Birmingham, at the time when it was growing into a substantial suburb. Coverage stretches from Knight's Road eastward to Lyndon Farm and the old county boundary, and from the cemetery southward to Botteville Road. Although we have given the map it’s Warwickshire sheet number, it also serves as Worcestershire sheet 6.15.
Features include GWR railway with Acock's Green station, part of Tyseley, Stockfield, Cottsbrook House, Warwick & Birmingham Canal, nursery, allotments, St Mary's church, Pioneer Cabinet Works, Tyseley Farm, Stockfield Hall, cycle accessory works, Redstone Farm. The 1913 version includes the Birmingham & North Warwickshire Railway with Spring Road Halt.
Each map includes a specially written introduction to the history of the area.
The map links up with sheets 14.11 South Yardley to the north, 14.14 Sparkhill to the west.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
