Tyneside & Wearside 1878 - England Sheet 20/21
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.
We published this Inch to the Mile reprint as early as 1984, to accompany our Tyneside and County Durham large scale reprints. Because of this it is not quite standard with our other one-inch reprints, and is double-sided. Sheet 20 is on one side, and covers the area from Corbridge eastward to Newcastle, and southward to Consett; sheet 21 is on the reverse, and covers the area onward to Sunderland, Seaham and the coast. There are brief introductions to each map.
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.
