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 One Inch to the Mile map straddles the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, though covering rather more of the southern county. Coverage stretches from Homersfield station eastward to the coast, and from Lowestoft southward to Southwold. On the reverse is a detailed map of the village of Wrentham, complete with directory. Several towns are on the map: Lowestoft, Beccles, Bungay, Southwold and Halesworth, along with numerous small villages, including the complicated Ilketshall and South Elmham parishes.

    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.
