Redditch & District 1907 - England Sheet 183
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 is split between Worcestershire and Warwickshire, covering an area south of the Birmingham conurbation. Coverage stretches from Bromsgrove eastward to Haseley and Hatton House, and from Longbridge southward to Great Alne. Robert Bearman describes this as a hilly area often referred to as the 'centre of England', lying astride the watershed between the catchment areas of the River Severn to the south and the River Trent to the north". On the reverse we include a good extract from Warwickshire Sheet 31.12 and this covers Henley in Arden in 1903, complete with directory.
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.
