South Huntingdonshire 1897 - England Sheet 187
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 area of southern Huntingdonshire around Huntingdon, St Ives and St Neots. Coverage stretches from Great Staughton eastward to Willingham, and from Alconbury southward to Caxton. The River Ouse and GNR run through the map and other railway features include the Kettering & Huntingdon Branch, Ely Sutton & St Ives Branch, and Cambridge & St Ives Branch. Ancient roads include Ermine Street and the Via Devana. On the reverse we include an extract from Hunts Sheet 22.03, covering Hemingford Abbots in 1900, with extracts from a 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.
