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 Sheet 98:

  • One Inch Sheet 98 Stockport, Altrincham & NE Cheshire 1912 - published 2004; intro by Chris Makepeace. ISBN.978-1-84151-614-1

    This busy Inch to the Mile map is an ideal accompaniment to the growing range of detailed, large scale maps we have published for the Stockport and Trafford areas. It shows them in context. Coverage stretches from Lymm eastward to Marple and Compstall, and from Chorlton cum Hardy southward to Prestbury. On the reverse is a detailed map of Adlington Hall and Hollingsworth Smithy, including Adlington station. Ringway, much changed since the growth of Manchester Airport, is in the centre of the Inch to the Mile map.

    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.
