1842 MAP OF BITTON PARISH

 

Warning: The map shows the Midland railway line going south from Mangotsfield along side of the dramway.. However, the Midland line wasn't built until 1869, so it seems that the map was amended later. The route of the railway is also not quite right - maybe it was being used to plan the new route?

 

Much of Kingswood was in the parish of Bitton up until 1897. Lower Soundwell was in this area while Upper Soundwell was in Mangotsfield parish.

 

A lot of the modern roads are starting to become clear now and various works and mines are shown.
