ST. AUSTELL AREA

The Original Ordnance Survey Map (Old Style) from 1813 - including areas covered by Par, St. Blazey, Tywardreath, Treverbyn, Charlestown, and St. Austell; a large, detailed file, in which parish boundaries are not shown. The map may open a bit slowly, as it's a large file. It's an OUTSTANDING MAP, not available elsewhere.

Hand-drawn map of St. Austell, 1878, clearly labeled - clearly deliniating approximate parish boundaries

Line drawn map, pre 1848 - correlates to the List of Places, taken from OS Explorer 10

Old Maps - their coordinates are not the same as the Ordnance Survey maps; St. Austell is "201500-52500". You can then navigate around the map. Maps of other dates, 6 in all, are shown in a series of 3 beneath the 1888 map; you can choose which to view. The 1888 has many places the 1907 or 1933 does not.

Geograph - an effort to take photos of every OS map section in Britain; coverage varies, but seems to be very good for Cornwall, and St. Austell especially. OS references on the List of Places indicate the OS map section in which that particular place will be found.

GOOGLE maps - current-day; zoomable, with photos of the area .
