Marlborough, Avebury & The Downs 1897 - England Sheet 266
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 taken from the early Coloured Edition. It covers the area around Avebury, with coverage stretching from Bowood House and Calne eastward to Marlborough, and from Wroughton southward to Alton Priors. A major feature of the map is the number of archaeological sites, including Avebury itself, Silbury Hill, Windmill Hill and others; but more modern historians will also find the railways to Marlborough and Calne. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Avebury, including most of the Stone Circle, St James church, Avebury Trusloe.
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.
