Vale of White Horse 1893 - England Sheet 253
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, centred on Wantage, covers much of northern Berkshire. Coverage stretches from Shrivenham eastward to Didcot, and from Hinton Waldrist southward to East Ilsley. The Lambourn Downs are at the foot of the map, and the Downs run along the southern area. The GWR main line, the River Ock and the Wilts & Berks Canal run through the vale in the centre of the map. On the reverse we include an extract from Berkshire Sheet 6.08 showing the small town of Faringdon in 1910; this map is detailed, showing the station, Market Place, All Saints church, Faringdon House, Westbrook.
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.
