Last week, blog regular and top local history buff Steve Hickman sent me a .PDF scan of a remarkable map. The sheet shows Walsall Wood, I’m fairly certain at 1:2500 scale and is dated 1902, although the footnotes say it was surveyed n 1882. I can personally recommend reading the key at the bottom, there’s some wonderful stuff in there. This is the second, larger sheet referred to when I posted Steve’s previous Ordnance Survey sheet of Stonnall.
I thank Steve for his dedication, generosity and community spirit; I’d also like to point out that there’s more fascinating information to come about William Taylor and his fine craftsmanship.
