Dartmoor 1908 - England Sheet 338
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 Inch to the Mile Map covers a broad expanse of Dartmoor. Coverage stretches from Marytavy and Whitchurch eastward to Ashburton, and from Lydford southward to Buckfast Abbey and Sheepstor. Near the centre is the small town of Princetown, with its convict prison and railway. On the reverse we include an extract from Devon Sheet 106.08, of the area immediately around Dartmoor prison in 1904, with a directory of Princetown (sadly it doesn't name the prisoners!)
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.
