Item:360266447633Ancestors from Oxfordshire Old Ordnance Survey Maps South Oxfordshire 1887 including Henley, Watlington, Wallingford and a large scale plan of Dorchester on Thames ONE INCH SHEET 254 Small Scale map an inch to the mile This Reprint map first published July 2003 Description of Map These are the Alan Godfrey maps and have a wide reputation for good quality maps at a fantastic price. This is a brand new black & white folded map taken from the famous OS "Inch to the Mile" Maps 254 as published in 1887. Though obviously far less detailed than the large scale maps they provide an invaluable overview of a wider area, typically 18 miles across by 12 miles down. For transport historians they are invaluable for showing old railways, while all historians need them for their close depiction of topography, including parish boundaries. A must for the historian, genealogist and anyone interested in the local history of South Oxfordshire area between the 1881 and 1891 census period. On the reverse is a large scale plan of Dorchester on Thames together with an introduction. Description from Publisher Coverage is the south Oxfordshire area around Watlington, Wallingford and Henley. To the west is part of Berkshire, to the east Buckinghamshire. Coverage stretches from Blewbury eastward to Medmenham, and from March Baldon southward to Rotherfield Peppard. The map "neatly contrasts the enduring aspects of the Thames Valley and its historic riverside towns with the majestic sweep of the southern Chilterns with their ancient traditions, classic woodland scenery and sprinkling of spring line villages linked by prehistoric paths".
