DARTMOOR as it was 100 years ago can now be revisited, thanks to a new reproduction of an original Ordnance Survey map.

Dartmoor 1908 reproduces the one inch to one mile map for the area from Lydford and Peter Tavy in the west to Ashburton in the east, and extending south to Sheepstor and Buckfast, and including Princetown and Postbridge.

As well as moorland, villages and hamlets, streams, rivers and roads, the map shows details such as tin mines and railways, including the Princetown branch.

Period detail is shown, including the layout of towns and villages and the often-complex parish boundaries.

The chart is accompanied by a descriptive essay by Dartmoor expert Dr Tom Greeves, and a large-scale map extract showing Princetown as it was in 1895. Dartmoor 1908 is published by Alan Godfrey Maps, and is now on sale in bookshops, information centres or directly from the publisher.
