SW Montgomeryshire 1908 - Wales Sheet 164
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 southern Montgomeryshire, with coverage stretching from Y Foel, Pen Plynlimon-Arwystli and Plynlimon Fawr eastward to Penstrowed; and from Carno southward to Llangurig. Much of the area is mountainous, especially to the west, but roads and railways go up the valleys of the Severn and the Carno. Llanidloes, near the centre of the map, is the only town, although Caersws, once home to a Roman camp, has a workhouse. The Cambrian Railway is shown and also a long stretch of their Mid Wales line, the Van Railway, and the route of the already disused line to Llangurig. Railway historians will also enjoy our backing map, an extract from Montgomery Sheet 41.12, which shows Y Fan in detail, including the Van Mines, mineral tramlines, and the end of the Van Railway, including Garth & Van Road station.
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.
