From Landmark Information Group's free historical maps service. Around 85,000 images are available for viewing using a standard Internet browser.  The maps are dated between 1846 and 1899, and are of 1:10,560 scale. No additional plug-in software is required to view the maps

Since the map sheets are larger than the viewable area on your screen, you will need to pan around the sheet using your browser scrollbars in order to see the entire map. For that reason, our Places Gazetteer shows you the rough direction in which you may need to scroll to see your selected town. e.g. SE illustrates that you should scroll to the lower right sector of the map.

To go directly to the map for any location in Dorset simply click on the first letter of its name in the column on the left.  Not all locations are listed in the index. If the town or village you are looking for is not listed, then try an adjacent town or village and use the sites navigation to locate the one of interest
