Peterborough & District 1906 - England Sheet 158
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 area around and to the NE of Peterborough, with coverage stretching from Helpston eastward to Guyhirne, and from Sutton St Edmund southward to Whittlesey. Other towns on the map are Crowland and Market Deeping, while on the reverse we include a detailed map of Deeping St James and Deeping Gate. Transport features include the Peterborough, Wisbech & Sutton Bridge Branch, the River Nene, while there is a good depiction of the fens.
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.
