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 Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Taunton northward to Stogursey, and from Wiveliscombe eastward to Weston Zoyland. Features include the Vale of Taunton Deane, the Quantock Hills, much of the West Somerset railway, a stretch of the Devon & Somerset Branch through Wiveliscombe, stretches of other branch lines around Bridgwater and Lyng, the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal, the towns of Taunton and Bridgwater.
