Flodden Field & North Cheviots 1901 - England Sheet 3
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.
The Ordnance Survey originally titled this map 'Ford'. It covers a rural area of north Northumberland, from Cornhill eastward to Ford, southward to Kirknewton and Earle. We have named it after the Battle of Flodden Field, 1513, the site of which is near the centre of the map. This is border country but please note that the area of Scotland is left blank, except for Coldstream itself, which is included. A detailed map of Cornhill (which includes Coldstream station) is on the back. The NER Coldstream and Kelso branches shown on the one-inch map will be of interest to railway historians.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on this map. The towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map are:
Northumberland: Akeld, Branxton, Carham, Coldsmouth Hill, Cornhill, Coupland, Crookhouse, Duddo, Earle, Etal, Ewart, Felkington, Ford, Heathpool, Howtel, Humbleton, Kilham, Kirknewton, Lanton, Milfield, Nesbit, Paston, Westnewton, Yeavering.
