Fakenham & District 1908 - England Sheet 146
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 a northern area of Norfolk, around and to the west and south of Fakenham. Coverage stretches from Shernborne and Grimston eastward to Elmham Park, and from West Barsham southward to Castle Acre. As usual with Norfolk there are numerous small villages, and other features include Raynham Park (in the centre of the map), Houghton Hall, Coxford Heath; also the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway and a stretch of the GER Wymondham & Wells Branch. On the back we include an extract from Norfolk sheet 48.01 which shows the village of Litcham in detail, complete with directory.
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.
