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 Sheets 11 & 12:

  • One Inch Sheet 11/12 Longtown, Bewcastle & District 1902 - published 2004; intro by John Griffiths. ISBN.978-1-84151-706-3

    For maximum coverage we have put these two maps side by side. Please note that the area of Scotland on the maps is left blank. Coverage stretches from Longtown and the Scottish border eastward to Thirlwall Common and the boundary with Northumberland, and northward to Bewcastle Fells. The North British Railway winds along close to the border. On the reverse we include a large scale detailed map of Longtown itself.

    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.

  • Cumberland: Longtown.
  • Northumberland: Bewcastle, King Water, Kirkcambeck, Solport, Trough.
