Local Maps

You can download the Definitive Map of Over Parish by clicking here.

This map can be magnified many times to show fine details of public footpaths, etc.

 

There is also a very useful interactive OS-based map, which allows many useful local features to be highlighted.

Don't be put off by the milky mush that greets you - head immediately to the top right of the screen, click on the grid of four squares and select "OS Maps Roads". The details then show up clearly, without the initial 'milkiness', and you can then expand the map considerably to reveal house numbers and other fine detail.

Then click on the layers (sliced bread) icon, check the box alongside Over PC, then expand it to reveal the various information categories. (Take care: expanding the sub-menus without checking the main Over PC box won't show any Over data.)

You will then be able to view many useful local features, such as house numbers, the Conservation Area, the Development Framework, Listed Buildings, Parish Land, and Tree Preservation Orders.

If you're feeling adventurous, head for the top left of the screen and click on the ruler icon. This creates a 'Measurement' box, allowing the area of a plot to be calculated in a whole range of units, the distance between two points to be determined, or a precise grid reference to be generated. With care (and much trial-and-error!), irregular areas can be measured, and the bends on a road can be followed precisely.

This map can also be useful for locating particular houses in other villages, but the overlays only contain information for Over.
