Following on from the 1884 Brownhills South and Walsall Wood map of last week, I have one that will interest those wanting to investigate the mining history on Brownhills Common. This is an 1884 1:1250 plot of that area in 1884. It carries some rather interesting annotations.
For David Evans, wells are extensively noted with the ‘W’ mark. Other abbreviations are decoded by the Ordnace Survey themselves here.
You can download copies of this map at high resolution below. They’re quite large, so patience will be required on slow connections.
I’d like to thank the anonymous reader who located this map and scanned it. You’re a star.
