Market Harborough & District 1905 - England Sheet 170
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 is split between Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, with Market Harborough near the centre of the sheet. Coverage stretches from Lutterworth eastward to Rothwell, and from Kilby and Great Glen station southward to Naseby. Market Harborough is shown as a significant railway centre, with lines going in many directions. On the reverse we include an extract from Leicestershire Sheet 50.07, showing Lubenham in 1899.
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.
