    The Somerset Archives has two sets of Ordnance Survey maps online. The 1st edition (c1884-87) and the 2nd edition (abt 1900) are available and easily navigated.
    You can choose the location you wish to see in the OS map either by clicking on a map or doing a name search.
    If you haven't used OS maps before, they show not only roads but the position of buildings and even trees. They name many farms and prominent buildings.
    Don't forget the 1851 FamilySearch map if you need an earlier one.
