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 169:
One Inch Sheet 169 Coventry, Nuneaton & District 1899 - published 2006; intro by Barrie Trinder. ISBN.978-1-84151-905-0
This One Inch to the Mile map covers the area from Coventry northward to Hinckley, and from Meriden (often regarded as the centre of England) eastward to Churchover and Broughton Astley.
Features include the major towns of Coventry and Nuneaton, the Oxford Canal, the Coventry Canal, the Leicester & Rugby railway branch, Watling Street (the A5). On the reverse we
include a detailed map of Burbage, with directory.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you might find it useful if we here list the majority of the principal villages
and church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
