We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, including a group in Buckinghamshire. 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 centre and west of High Wycombe, here also referred to as Chepping Wycombe. The sheetlines are a little awkward and the town is in the NE quadrant of the map, with coverage running from the station westward to Green Street and Desborough Street. Features include All Saints church, High Street, Town Hall, Wycombe Abbey, Barracks, Oxford Street, Frogmoor Gardens, Newland, Castle Hill, Laura Place. Coverage extends south to Daws Hill, while the SW area of the map is open country around Oakridge Wood. There is a 1903 directory on the reverse.
