Rutland & Stamford 1906 - England Sheet 157
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 the tiny county of Rutland, but smaller areas of other counties also intrude: a fragment of Leicestershire in the SW corner; Lincolnshire, including the historic town of Stamford, in the NE; Northamptonshire to the south and east, and a small area of Huntingdonshire in the SE corner. In fact, a sixth county might be said to be here, for part of Northamptonshire is in the Soke of Peterborough, shown by the OS here as a county in its own right. Features include several great estates: Exton Park, Normanton Park, Burghley Park, as well as some long lost railways: the Stamford & Essendine Branch; Rugby & Stamford Branch; and the LNWR Rugby-Peterborough line. On the back we include an extract from Rutland Sheet 10.15, showing the village of Ketton in detail, complete with directory.
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.
