Stafford & District 1898 - England Sheet 139
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 Staffordshire around and to the west of Stafford, with a smaller area of Shropshire also included. Coverage stretches from Market Drayton eastward to Stafford and Sandon, and from Stone southward to Church Eaton and Bradley. Newport (Shropshire) is the other town included, and transport interest includes the Shropshire Union Canal and the LNWR's Shrewsbury & Stafford line. On the reverse we include an extract from Staffs Sheet 43.03, covering Gnosall and Gnosall Heath 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 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.
