Isles of Scilly 1896 - England Sheet 357/360
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 Inch to the Mile map was issued by the OS as a composite map covering the whole of the Isles of Scilly. It is a useful addition to the series, especially for those looking for complete coverage of Cornwall or, indeed, the country, though we feel the original cartography makes it something of a curiosity. On the reverse we include a large extract of Cornwall sheet 87.02, which covers much of Hugh Town in detail, coverage stretching from Garrison Hill eastward to Tolman Point and Old Town ; features include Buzza Hill, Trinity Houses, Custom House, lifeboat house, old pier etc.
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.
Cornwall: The whole of the Isles of Scilly is covered, including the following islands: Bryher, Tresco, Samson, St Helens, Tean, St Martins, Eastern Isles, St Mary's, St Agnes, Annet, Melledgan, Western Rocks.
