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
Here is information about Sheet 300:
One Inch Sheet 300 Alton & District 1893 - published 2003; intro by Tony Painter. ISBN.978-1-84151-513-7
This Inch to the Mile map covers a large area of rural east Hampshire. Coverage stretches from Itchen Abbas eastward to Kingsley and Woolmer Forest, and from
Preston Candover southward to Petersfield. Other towns on the map include Alton and New Alresford, and the map will therefore be of interest to railway enthusiasts for the restored Alton-Alresford line.
Villages of note include Chawton, home to Jane Austen, and Selborne, where Gilbert White wrote his 'Natural History of Selborne'; on the reverse we include a more detailed map of
Selborne, including 'The Wakes', White's home, and the Zigzag path he created up onto Selborne Hanger. A directory of Selborne in 1899 is also included.
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.
