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 191:

  • One Inch Sheet 191 Saxmundham & District 1905 - published 2001; intro by Robert Malster. ISBN.978-1-84151-256-3

    This One Inch to the Mile map covers the area of East Suffolk centred on Saxmundham. Coverage stretches from Framlingham eastward to the coast, and from Walpole and Walberswick southward Aldeburgh. The East Suffolk railway runs through the map, with branches off it to Aldeburgh and Framlingham; parts of the Southwold Railway appear at the top.The area is notable for its eroded coastline and on the reverse we include Suffolk Sheet 40.13. This coastal map shows the village of Dunwich in 1903; a directory is also given, giving a population of 250 in 1891 (and only 157 by 1901). Dunwich had once been almost as important as Ipswich, but the sea had swept most of it away.

    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.
