Leicester & District 1906 - England Sheet 156
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 the east central area of Leicestershire, around and to the east of Leicester itself. Coverage stretches from Cropston and Narborough eastward to Belton in Rutland, and from Mountsorrel southward to Hallaton. Railways include the Great Central, the Tilton & Leicester Branch, the GN & LNW Joint Railway. Leicester is far and away the largest place on the map but there are many villages. On the back we include a detailed map of the centre of one of these, Sileby, complete with directory.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you might find it useful if we here list the majority of the principal villages and church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
