The large scale plans of the Ordnance Survey are quite unique. In a clear and attractive manner they have portrayed our towns and villages in detail over the last 150 yeas. They show not just the streets but virtually every house; the complete track layouts of railways and tramways are given; factories, mills and docks are all shown. The maps contain al the fascinating minutiae that is the lifeblood of history and have become the most complete record of the places where our ancestors lived and worked.
The Godfrey Edition is a major undertaking to reprint these maps, in a convenient and affordable form, for towns throughout the country. This map will delight local historians, genealogists and all who are interested in the history of Northern Ireland and its towns.
This Inch to the Mile map covers the Co Down coast around Dundrum Bay, with coverage stretching from Ardglass southward to Annalong. The map includes the seaside resort of Newcastle, Dundrum Castle, Tyrella sands where the great steamship, Great Britain, was beached, and the busy fishing port of Ardglass. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Ardglass, showing the station, harbour, various castles, tramway, etc. It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map.
