Newport, Caerphilly & District 1894 - Wales Sheet 249
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 covers the area around and to the north of Newport and Caerphilly, including much of the eastern Valleys. Coverage stretches from Glyn Taff and Treharris eastward to Caerleon, with Goldcliff in the SE corner; and from Pontypool southward to St Bride's Wentlloog. Much the largest town is Newport with its expanding docks, but scattered development is shown over much of the map, notably along the valleys of the Taff, Rhymney, Ebbw, Sirhowy. Numerous railways run through these valleys, including the Taff Vale Extension, Rhymney Railway, Sirhowy Branch, Taff Vale Aberdare Extension, Brecon & Merthyr Railway, Barry Railway, Newport Ebbw Vale & Nantyglo Branch, Newport & Blaenafon Railway and others. Other features include the Monmouthshire Canal and Brecon & Newport Canal. On the reverse we include an extract from Monmouthshire Sheet 28.04 showing Llanvihangel Llantarnam.
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.
