Keswick & The Northern Lake District 1903 - England Sheet 29
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 early One Inch Ordnance Survey map covers the area around Keswick. Coverage stretches from Loweswater eastward to Ullswater, and from Blencathra southward to the Borrowdale Fells. Major features include Helvellyn, Derwent Water, Thirlmere, Crummock Water, Ennerdale Fell, Buttermere, Whin Fell, Lorton Fells, Derwent Fells, Wythburn Fells, Matterdale Common, Saddleback or Blencathra, Skiddaw.

However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map.
