Old Ordnance Survey Inch to the Mile Maps
These maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving
a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

This Inch to the Mile map covers an area of central Somerset, with coverage stretching from Middlezoy eastward to Castle Cary, and from Langport northward to Meare.
Features include the towns of Glastonbury, Castle Cary, Langport and Somerton; stretches of the GWR and Somerset & Dorset lines, including much of the Burnham & Evercreech Jct line; King's Sedgemoor, Catcott Heath, etc. On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Evercreech, incl St Peter's church, Evercreech House, Weston Town, station (note this is not the junction station), Windy Farm etc.
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.
