Vale of Evesham & Stratford 1892 - England Sheet 200
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 Inch to the Mile map covers part of south Warwickshire, including Stratford-on-Avon, and Worcestershire around Evesham, but one of its fascinating features is the complex pattern of county boundaries, with detached portions of both Warwickshire and Worcestershire to confuse us, along with a northern spur of Gloucestershire. I hope that I have listed the villages correctly below; doubtless purchasers of the map will advise me of any errors! Other towns include Alcester and, in the bottom margin, Chipping Camden, evidence that we are in the north Cotswolds here. The ancient Icknield Street runs through the map, as does the River Avon, and railways include the East & West Jct and the Barnet Green, Evesham & Alvechurch branch. On the reverse we include an extract from Warwickshire Sheet 43.13, showing the little village of Salford Priors in detail, with its own directory.
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.
