Welshpool & District 1904-12 - Wales Sheet 151
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 One Inch to the Mile map covers that lovely area of the Marches west of Shrewsbury, and the map is almost equally divided between Shropshire and Montgomeryshire or Powys. Coverage stretches from Llanfair Caereinion eastward to Minsterley and the Stiperstones. The River Severn and the Cambrian Railway run through the map, which also shows the much loved Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway. Keen eyed railway historians will also find a stretch of the Shropshire & Montgomery Railway's Breiddon branch, as well as a fragment of the mineral line to Snailbeach. On the reverse we include an extract from Montgomeryshire Sheet 22.10, showing Llanfair Caereinion in 1901.
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.
Montgomeryshire: Berriew, Castle Caereinion, Criggion, Leighton, Llanfair Caereinio
