Mapping the past

Looking at old maps is almost as pleasurable as listening to old records so the [W:Ordnance Survey] maps from the 1940s provides much distraction. But if this is 1946 shouldn’t there be an airfield (now the [W:Fire Service College]) in the top right corner of [W:Moreton-in-Marsh]?

It is a fascinating picture of bygone age when the country was crisscrossed with railway lines and the trains from Moreton stopped at [W:Adlestrop railway station].

It is late June.
