Kielder 1866 - England Sheet 7
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 a rural part of Northumberland, close to the border - but please note that the area of Scotland is left blank. The North British Railway is shown winding through this remote area and we include an inset map showing the Kielder Castle area in detail. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Plashetts, including colliery and station, now largely under water. A timetable for the Riccarton to Newcastle route is also included.
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.
