North Herefordshire 1898 - England Sheet 198
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 much of northern Herefordshire. Coverage stretches from Hereford northward to the outskirts of Leominster, and from Weobley eastward to Bromyard. This is orchard country and Derrick Pratt notes that "by 1790 fifteen varieties of cider apple and six of pears were being grown within the county by 'people of all stations'", and that "with its interspersed hopfields the north Herefordshire landscape takes on a unique, distinctive appearance". Other features of note include the long closed railways from Leominster to Bromyard and from Hereford to Hay.
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 towns where we have published more detailed maps.
