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.
This One Inch to the Mile map covers an area of the Peak District. "There is an astonishing degree of variety in the physical and cultural landscapes portrayed on this map", says author Derek Brumhead. The great spa town of Buxton is at the top of the map, and other towns are Leek, in the SW corner, and Bakewell, near the eastern margin. On the back we include an extract from Derbyshire Sheet 27.16, showing Hartington in 1919, complete with a directory of 'Hartington Town Quarter'. For railway historians the Ashbourne & Buxton line runs through the main map, and sections of the Buxton & High Peak and main Midland line to Buxton are also shown.
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.
