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 title, at the scale of an Inch to the Mile, is dominated by The Potteries: the'Six Towns'' or "The Five Towns" of Arnold Bennett. Interestingly the OS takes Bennett''s line and Fenton is not distinguished here as a town, and is shown only in lower case lettering. Coverage of this map stretches from Willaston and Wybunbury eastward to Blythebridge, and from Kidsgrove southward to Barlaston. The southern tip of Crewe, including Crewe station, is at the top of the map. The towns shown here include Burslem, Tunstall, Longton, Hanley, Stoke upon Trent and Newcastle under Lyme. Transport features include canals and several long closed railways, including the Stoke Silverdale and Market Drayton line; the Audley Branch; the Biddulph Valley Branch; the Leek and Bucknall Branch; and the famous NSR Loop Line. On the reverse is a detailed map of Betley. Dr Malcolm Nixon provides a thorough introduction telling us how the area developed. Although the map is dominated by Staffordshire there are also significant portions of Cheshire and Shropshire.
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.
Cheshire: Barthomley, Wistaston, Wybunbury.
Shropshire: Norton in Hales, Woore.
Staffordshire: Ashley, Audley, Barlaston, Betley
