North Shropshire Plain 1904 - England Sheet 138
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 covers the north Shropshire area around Wem, with a tiny portion of Flintshire intruding at the top. Coverage stretches from Ellesmere, in the top left corner, eastward to Little Drayton and Child Ercall, and southward to Hadnall and Crudgington. On the reverse is a detailed map of the strangely named village of Ruyton of the XI Towns (or Ruyton-in-the-Eleven-Towns) complete with directory, once a borough town.
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.
