Rockingham Forest & Kettering 1905 - England Sheet 171
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 much of NE Northants, including the area known as Rockingham Forest. Smaller areas of Huntingdonshire, Leicestershire and Rutland are also included. Coverage stretches from Rushton eastward to Hemington and Winwick, and from Blatherwycke Park southward to Kettering and Thrapston. The other town shown is Oundle, served by the LNWR Northampton to Peterborough line, which runs through the map. On the back we include an extract from Northants Sheet 25.01, showing the village of Rushton in 1899.
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.
