South Holland 1906 - England Sheet 144
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 Lincolnshire fens around Spalding, which is near the centre of the map. Westward coverage goes as far as the South Four Foot Drain and a little beyond - there are no villages here, just the Hacconby Fen, Morton Fen, Aslackby Fen etc - while eastward it goes to Gedney; coverage continues northward to Fosdyke, southward to Deeping St Nicholas. The Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway crosses the map, with stations in extraordinarily remote places. The only towns are Spalding and Holbeach, and on the reverse we include a detailed map of the centre of Holbeach, with a brief 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.
Lincolnshire: Cowbit, Deeping St Nicholas, Fleet, Fosdyke, Gedney, Gosberton, Holbeach, Moulton, Pinchbeck, Quadring, Spalding, Surfleet, Weston, Whaplode.
