  • Wiltshire Sheet 34.13 Devizes 1899 - published 1993; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-0-85054-582-1

    This particular sheet is double sided to give maximum coverage of Devizes, the suburbs of Dunkirk, Hillworth, St Joseph's Place, Wick Green and the surrounding area. Both the Great Western Railway Devizes Branch and the Kennet & Avon Canal travel from the west into adjacent outskirts of Devizes. The large stretches of fields and rural landscape in the west,only interupted by the railway, canal locks and various farms, gradually morphs into Devizes in the north-east of the map. Among the streets, shown here in detail with individual houses, are St Peter's Church, St Joseph's RC Chapel, St John the Baptist's Church, St Mary's Church, St James's Church; other features on the map include Her Majesty's Prison, Cottage Hospital, Union Workhouse, the market place, and of course, Devizes Castle. The backing map, covering the eastern part of the town, includes Devizes Green, Southbroom House and the workhouse. We also include a short history of the town, giving a brief insight from the Norman built castle to the closure of the prison after World War I. Transport historians will be especially interested in the railway and station, long closed, and the canal, with its famous flight of locks, 20 of which are shown here.
