Manchester & District 1896 - England Sheet 85
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 is the perfect accompaniment to the growing series of detailed, large-scale maps we are publishing for the Manchester area, for it helps to put them into context, and shows how one town relates to another, and how the railways, many long since closed, linked different communities together. It covers Manchester and the area to the north. Coverage stretches from Tyldesley eastward to Stalybridge, and from Bury southward to Levenshulme and Hyde. Apart from Manchester itself, major towns covered include Bolton, Bury, Oldham and Salford, and numerous other smaller towns are included, as listed below. The southern part of Rochdale is also shown. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Birch. Although the map is predominantly Lancashire, small areas of Yorkshire and Cheshire creep in at the eastern edge.
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.
