Norwich, Hingham & District 1908 - England Sheet 161
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 central area of Norfolk, around and to the SW of Norwich. Coverage stretches from East Dereham eastward to Thorpe-next-Norwich, and from Ringland southward to Attleborough. Norwich is by far the largest place on the map, but other towns include Hingham, Wymondham, East Dereham (at the western edge) and Attleborough (at the southern edge.) Railways include the Wymondham & Wells Branch, the Midland & Great Northern Joint as it enters Norwich, and the Eastern Union line. As usual in Norfolk, there are dozens of small villages. On the back we include an extract from Norfolk Sheet 73.10, which shows the centre of Hingham in detail, complete with a good directory for the town.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you might find it useful if we here list the majority of the principal villages and church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
