SW Berkshire 1889 - England Sheet 267
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 early Inch to the Mile map covers much of SW Berkshire, with a smaller portion of east Wiltshire. Coverage stretches from Axford and Savernake House eastward to Thatcham, and from Catmore and Upper Lambourn southward to Shalbourne. Newbury, Hungerford and Lambourn are the towns on the map. The Rivers Lambourn and Kennet run through the map, as do the Kennet & Avon Canal, GWR and Didcot, Newbury & Southampton railways. On the reverse we include an extract from Wiltshire Sheet 30.05, showing Ramsbury in 1898.
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.
