We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, including groups in Berkshire & Oxfordshire. 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.

Blenheim Palace is shown further SW, with The Lake, Queen Pool, Column of Victory, Fair Rosamond's Well, and many avenues etc. The borough of New Woodstock was founded by Henry II who visited Woodstock Park to meet his lover Rosamund Clifford, 'Fair Rosamund'. One of Donizetti's loveliest operas, Rosmonda D'Inghilterra, is set in Woodstock Park, and other composers were also drawn to the tale. So was the GWR, for the branch line's engine was called Fair Rosamund. Blenheim Palace was built by Vanbrugh for John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Our map includes a directory of Woodstock in 1899 plus a timetable for the railway branch.
