Derby, Derwent & Erewash 1895 - England Sheet 125
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 One Inch to the Mile map covers an area of Derbyshire north of Derby, with a section of Nottinghamshire also included. Coverage stretches from Brailsford and Kirk Ireton eastward to Bulwell and Hucknall Torkard, and from Wirksworth southward to Derby itself. Railway historians will enjoy the many lines shown here, including the GNR Derbyshire & North Staffordshire Extension, the Wirksworth Branch, the Erewash Valley lines, the Ambergate & Pyebridge Branch, the Ripley Branch, etc. On the reverse is a section of Derbyshire Sheet 34.16, showing Whatstandwell and Crich Carr in detail in 1920.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you might find it useful if we here list the majority of the principal villages and church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
