Here are the details of maps for Ilchester:
Somerset Sheet 73.16 Ilchester 1928 - published 2007; introduction by Tony Painter. ISBN.978-1-84784-028-8
This detailed map covers the tiny town of Ilchester. In 1901 this had a population of just 433, but it was once a major town which, in the
Middle Ages, boasted 7 churches. Until 1832 it sent two MPs to Parliament. However it was already in serious decline by the late Middle Ages and in 1542 Leland
describes it as "one of the ancientest townes...yn wonderful decay". Our map covers most of the town, including Northover, and features
include Hainbury House, Hainbury Flour Mill, Northover Flour Mill, St Andrew's church, St Mary's church, Kingshams House, Town Hall and all houses neatly shown. We
also include directories for the town in both 1902 and 1927 and with Tony Painter's comprehensive introduction the map provides an excellent historical overview
of this fascinating small town.
