Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Breconshire
We have a range of detailed maps for towns and villages in Breconshire or Brecknockshire, and we also cover the whole county at the Inch to the Mile scale. Here are the details.
The following maps are all taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 15 inches to the mile.
They are extremely detailed, showing individual houses, details such as railway tracks, pathways,
pubs, factories and even minutiae such as fountains and signal posts. Each map includes an introduction.
All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.
For a summary of the county's administrative history go to This Page.
