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 196:

  • One Inch Sheet 196 North Breconshire 1908 - published 2003; intro by Edward Parry. ISBN.978-1-84151-481-9

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the northern part of Breconshire or Brecknockshire. Coverage stretches from Mynydd Trawsnant and Cefn Coch eastward to Gwenddwr and Altmawr, and from Newbridge on Wye southward to Llandulas. The map is dominated by high moorland, while two railways run largely through the valleys, the Central Wales line and the Cambrian's Mid Wales line, the two crossing at Builth Road. The only towns are the small spa towns of Builth Wells and Llanwrtyd Wells; a third spa, Llangammarch Wells, was only regarded as a village by the OS. On the back we include an extract from Radnorshire Sheet 27.03 covering the village of Newbridge on Wye in 1902.

    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.
