Geoff Gwatkin Maps


A1 black and white research maps (£10 each plus £5 p&p, £8 overseas) are available for Herefordshire and Gloucestershire (plus some parishes outside the boundaries of Herefordshire) with field names, land uses, description of buildings on the maps and a list of landowners added. They can cover one large parish or a number of smaller parishes. They were painstakingly redrawn at a common scale of 6 ins to 1 mile to be of use to historians, archaeologists, genealogists and anyone interested in the history of the landscape around their properties. A full list is given under research maps. At present there is some delay getting A1 maps printed, but I have resumed them and if there is any urgency I can email scanned A4 sections for as little as £1.50. 


The research has also made possible the production of hand drawn and coloured decorative maps individually commissioned to suit a customers requirements. They can be centered on a particular property, for example A3 size at 8 ins to 1 mile (£45 each), and more impressive A2 ones at 10 ins to 1 mile (£55 each) but individual farms, estates, parishes etc. can be commissioned from £25 depending on size. If the original sources are good enough larger scales can be used.  It is now also be possible (sources permitting) to produce such decorative farm or property centered maps for places elsewhere in England and Wales. These are unaffected by the present situation and can still be produced. 

Payment methods are shown in the relevant sections.

Maps are also produced for books and articles etc.
