These black and white reproductions of old Ordnance Survey maps are an invaluable resource for family historians.  They show towns and villages in detail, with individual buildings marked, as well as roads and railways.

The original scale of these maps was 1:2500 but they are reproduced in the Godfrey editions at about 1:4340 or 15 inches to the mile.   As well as the map each publication includes a useful history of the area it covers, plus some additional entries from contemporary sources such as Kelly’s Directories which sometimes includes an extract of residents by name.

Each map costs just £3.00 + P&P.
