Thame & District 1886 - England Sheet 237
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 map, which is split between Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, covers the area from Cowley eastward to the west edge of Aylesbury, and from Chinnor northward to Ludgershall. The towns on the map are Thame and Princes Risborough. Of the great estates the Rothschild's Waddesdon is the most celebrated on the map but Elizabeth Lockwood also reminds us of Waterperry House, Horsendon House and Notley Abbey. Railways include the Chinnor branch, the long-closed Thame-Oxford route and the line from Aylesbury to Quainton Road. At the west of the map villages like Cowley and Headington show the influence of nearby Oxford.
