Barrow-in-Furness and Walney Island 1896
Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Lancashire
This One Inch to the Mile map is dominated by the great Victorian ‘new town’ of Barrow. Coverage goes north to Furness Abbey, south to most of Walney Island, while to the east are the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay, as far east as Point of Lune. Features include Roa Island, with its railway; Piel Island; Foulney Island. This map is the ideal companion to the group of six large scale maps we have published for Barrow. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Yarlside and Stank, then an area of largely abandoned iron ore mines.
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.
