Colne Valley & Braintree 1887 - England Sheet 223
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 of Essex from Wethersfield eastward to Lexden, and from Castle Hedingham southward to Kelvedon. A small portion of Suffolk, around Nayland, is in the top right corner. Essex towns include Braintree, Coggeshall and Halstead, but this is really an area of villages. On the reverse is a detailed map of the village of Marks Tey, with a directory.
