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 fills a major gap in the series. It covers the western part of the Black Country, plus a good section of east Shropshire. Coverage stretches from Dudley and Tipton westward to Morville, and from Bilston southward to Wolverley. Featuires include much of the Severn Valley Railway, Kinlet Park, the industrial area around Sedgley, the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal, etc. On the reverse is a map of the village of Trysull.
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.
