We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, including a group in Buckinghamshire & Northants. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop where further information about titles is given. Or visit The Index Page for a full list to the series and details of Prices.
This detailed map covers the 'old town' of Amersham, shortly before the great changes brought by the Metropolitan Railway. The station, opened in 1892, is in the NE corner, some distance from the town which is centred on the High Street. Features here include St Mary's church, Workhouse, Town Hall, malthouse, Crown Farm, Bury Farm, River Misbourne, brewery, cemetery, Whielden Street. To the east is Bury End, with Bury Mill, but otherwise Amersham appears as a small country town. A 1903 directory of Amersham is on the reverse.
