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 37 & 47:

  • One Inch Sheet 37/47 Ravenglass & Sellafield 1875 - published 2008; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84784-093-6

    To give maximum coverage we have here included two maps, 37 and 47, which link up to cover the coastal strip from just south of Egremont, southward to Bootle. The Sellafield and Ravenglass areas are of especial interest, but the map also includes a detailed map of the village of Gosforth.

    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: Bootle, Drigg, Gosforth, Hale, Muncaster, Ponsonby, Ravenglass, Seascale, Sellafield, St Bridget Beckermet, St John Beckermet.
