Bing maps provide a choice of three views of the area, i.e.
- a road map to show the location of the village,
- an Ordnance Survey map for more detail, or
- a bird's eye or aerial
photomap view for added interest.
The greater detail on the Ordnance Survey maps (e.g. footpaths, woods,
churches, pubs etc.) make them particularly useful for exploring the villages and surrounding area on foot.
All the Bing maps and views can be printed.
WHY NOT LOOK AT VILLAGES IN OXFORDSHIRE TOO?
Oxfordshirevillages.co.uk is a sister site to Berkshiredownsvillages.co.uk and is a similar photo guide to all the villages throughout Oxfordshire. Why not have a look.
Nowadays most villages are cluttered with power and telephone poles and road signs and parked vehicles and unfortunately it is often impossible to take unspoiled photographs. Wheelie bins too ruin the appearance of a village. Although I try to avoid refuse collection days regrettably sometimes this has just not been possible.
