Poole Harbour & Bournemouth 1893 - England Sheet 329
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 Bournemouth. In 1893 this was split almost equally between Dorset and Hampshire, although today Bournemouth is administratively in Dorset. Coverage stretches from Lytchett Maltravers eastward to Highcliffe and Hinton Park, and from Lydbury Rings and Hinton Parva southward to Poole Harbour and Hengistbury Head. Bournemouth is already shown to be developing into an elegant resort, while the many heaths and commons on the map are attractively portrayed in this early map. On the reverse is an extract from Hampshire Sheet 87.02, covering Hinton Admiral.
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.
