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 a central area of County Tyrone, with coverage stretching from Beragh eastward to Donaghmore, and from Lough Macrory southward to Ballygawley. Railway historians will note the GNR line threading its way across the map. However, the main feature of this map is that is our first colour printed sheet for Ireland. Taken from the early OS colour printed sheet, it is a beautiful portrayal of this rugged and often hilly landscape.
On the reverse we include a detailed map of the village of Donaghmore, including station, Donaghmore House, soap factory, disused brewery, churches 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.
