Gobions Map 15 (of 20)

The 1991 Ordnance Survey map of the area 

In 2000, the former Gobions Woodland Trust commissioned a study to "help inform the development of a restoration and management plan for Gobions Wood". We have uploaded the text of the 118-page report to this site. The original report contained dozens of old maps and images dating back to 1718. At the bottom of this page is a list of links to many of those maps. Each has a 'pop out' button (top right - hover over the map to see it). Once the map has popped out you can zoom in to see the fine detail, which becomes clearer as the map downloads.

Online editor's note added April 2018: It has been pointed out that the map below does not show some roads (Woodlands and Shrublands) that existed in 1980, so it is confusing that the map is dated 1991. Also, it is likely that the original is at a scale of 1:10,000, rather than 6" to one mile. We have been unable to find for definite the source from which the map was copied. We are leaving the Heritage Report text as it was published, with just this comment to guide readers.
