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 a border area divided between Montgomeryshire and Shropshire, with a small area of Radnorshire included to the SW. Coverage stretches from Newtown eastward to Norbury and Lydbury North, and from Montgomery itself southward to Clun. This is hilly country, and hills include Cilfaesty Hill, Bryn Gydfa, Black Mountain, Corndon Hill. Apart from Newtown, the towns are tiny affairs: Clun, Montgomery, Bishops Castle with its celebrated railway. On the reverse is a large scale, detailed map of Montgomery or Trefaldwyn.
