Mid Airedale 1858-70 - England Sheet 69
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 an ideal accompaniment to the series of more detailed large scale maps we are publishing for Bradford. It covers the Airedale and Wharfedale areas north of Bradford; coverage stretches from Skipton (in the top left corner) southward to Bradford itself, and eastward to Bramhope and Bramley. Areas of interest include Ilkley Moor, Keighley Moor and the Worth Valley railway, the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and much more. Although Bradford is the largest settlement, Skipton, Keighley, Bingley and Otley are also classed as towns here by the OS - though it sees Ilkley as a village. As ever, Gordon Dickinson's introduction provides a splendidly lucid account of the area's growth. On the reverse we include a map of Bramhope.
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.
