Foulness & Mersea 1904 - England Sheet 242/259
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 map covers the area of eastern Essex from Clacton and Mersea Island southward to Foulness Island and Havengore Head. The two maps, 242 and 259, are here printed side by side to give maximum coverage of this fascinating coastal area. The towns on the map are Clacton on Sea and Brightlingsea. Beyond the coast are the Maplin Sands and other sandbanks, guarded by the Mouse and Middle lightships. On the reverse is a detailed map of St Osyth, together with a short directory.
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:
Essex: Bradwell juxta Mare, Brightlingsea, Clacton on Sea, Dengie, Foulness, Little Holland, Little Wigborough, Peldon, St Osyth, Tillingham, West Mersea.
