Diss & District 1907 - England Sheet 175
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 straddles the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, with coverage stretching from East Harling eastward to Mendham, and from Hempnall southward to Hoxne and Oakley Park. The River Waveney forms the boundary between the two counties, and its valley was once known for its linen manufacture. As usual in East Anglia, large numbers of small villages are shown, many showing a Hall and even moat. There are just three towns shown, Diss, East Harling and Harleston; a large scale map of Harleston is included on the reverse, giving a detailed picture of this market town, with its station, windmill,and principal streets - Broad St, The Thoroughfare and London Road. A directory of Harleston completes the picture.
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.
