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 188:

  • One Inch Sheet 188 Cambridge, Newmarket & District 1905 - published 2000; intro by Oliver Rackham. ISBN.978-1-84151-173-3

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers Cambridge and the area to the north. Cambridge itself is at the foot of the map and coverage extends northward to Wilburton and Soham, and from Oakington eastward to Cheveley and Worlington. Much of the area is fenland and features include many windmills, the Cambridge & Mildenhall railway, race courses at Newmarket. On the reverse we include an extract from Cambridgeshire Sheet 40.04 showing Waterbeach in detail, complete 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.
