Series: Old Ordnance Survey Maps One Inch to One Mile
Format: Folded Map
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 Inch to the Mile map covers a large area of rural east Hampshire. Coverage stretches from Itchen Abbas eastward to Kingsley and Woolmer Forest, and from Preston Candover southward to Petersfield. Other towns on the map include Alton and New Alresford, and the map will therefore be of interest to railway enthusiasts for the restored Alton-Alresford line. Villages of note include Chawton, home to Jane Austen, and Selborne, where Gilbert White wrote his 'Natural History of Selborne'; on the reverse is a more detailed map of Selborne, including 'The Wakes', White's home, and the Zigzag path he created up onto Selborne Hanger. A directory of Selborne in 1899 is also included.
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.
