Goole, Howden & District 1895 - England Sheet 79
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 flat landscape described by John Betjeman as "strangely Dutch", even more so than the Fens south of the Wash. It shows the upper Humberhead levels, where the waters of the Pennines come together, finding their way towards the North Sea. Coverage stretches from Hambleton and Askern eastward to Ousefleet and Gilberdike, from Crowle northward to Wressell. Goole, near the centre of the map, is the only substantial town, though the map also gives town status to Thorne, Crowle, Howden and Snaith. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Askern, complete with directory. Most of the map is Yorkshire, though there is a small portion of Lincolnshire in the SE corner.
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. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
