Winchelsea, Hastings & Dungeness 1903 - England Sheet 320/321
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 the south east area of Sussex, plus the Dungeness or Denge Ness part of Kent. We include Sheet 321, which covers Lydd and Denge Ness, as an inset to provide maximum coverage. Coverage of the main map stretches from Penhurst and Ashburnham Park eastward to Rye Harbour, and from Mountfield and Rye southward to Bexhill. Shet 321, which links up to the east, covers Lydd and the area to the south. As a bonus, on the reverse we include a large extract from Sussex Sheet 45.14, which shows Winchelsea in detail in 1897; this is a 13th century planned town (the sea had destroyed the original one) which, according to Tony Painter, "is now a quaint and atmospheric town, lacking Rye's more overt tourism".
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.
