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

    This Inch to the Mile map is an excellent accompaniment to the many more detailed, large scale maps we are publishing for the Wigan area. It covers the area from Kirkby and Ormskirk eastward to Leigh, and from Adlington and Horwich southward to St Helens. The area is criss-crossed by main-line and colliery railways. Other industries include locomotive building at Horwich and glass at St Helens, and there are several smaller towns, such as Earlestown, Newton in Makerfield, Hindley and Ormskirk, while many pit villages were becoming more urban. On the reverse we include a map of the village of Bryn, including part of Garswood Hall Collieries.

    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.
