Featuring Lakenheath Warren, now covered by the American Air Force Base, and on the reverse a directory of residents of Lakenheath including many of my ancestors this One Inch to the Mile map straddles the border between Norfolk and Suffolk, with coverage stretching from Feltwell and Lakenheath eastward to Bridgham and Knettishall, and from Methwold southward to Barningham, which is in the SE corner. This is an area known as Breckland, a name coined in the 1890s by the naturalist W G Clarke. This was a remote and thinly populated district, and at its centre is Thetford, once a cathedral city and the sixth largest town in Saxon England, but by 1907 a'sleepy backwater'' according to our author, Alan Crosby. Notable features on the map are areas of parkland, such as Shadwell Park, Euston Park, Wretham Park, Buckenham Tofts Park etc. and there are still areas of undeveloped heathland such as Lakenheath Warren and Bridgham Heath. On the back is a detailed map of Lakenheath, with directory.
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.
