These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1892 version is in colour, taken from the beautiful 1st Edition OS handcoloured map.
The maps cover the main part of Hindley, just east of Wigan. Coverage stretches from Walmesley Park (in top left corner) eastward to Chapel Fields and southward to Low Green. The many features include a stretch of the LNWR Lancashire Union line, a stretch of the GCR Wigan Junction Branch incl Hindley & Platt Bridge station and Amberswood East and West Curves, small stretches of LYR lines in top corner, Strangeways Hall Collieries, Strangeways House, Hindley Hall Colliery, Amberswood Common, Moss Hall, Moss Colliery, Riding Mine Colliery, Borsdane Brook, St Peter's church and Hindley town centre, Platt Lane Mill, Worthington Mills, Bleach Works, tramways, Grange Colliery, All Saints church, Grammar Pit, Ladies Lane Sale Yard etc.
