Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Cambridgeshire


  • We have a range of detailed maps for Cambridgeshire towns and we also cover the whole county at the Inch to the Mile scale. Here are the details.
  • All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

  • Between 1889-1965 Cambridgeshire was governed by two county councils, Cambridgeshire proper and the Isle of Ely. From 1974 the county was also amalgamated with Huntingdonshire and the Soke of Peterborough. See This page for a summary of its local government history.

  • The following maps are all taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 15 inches to the mile. They are extremely detailed, showing individual houses, details such as railway tracks, pathways, pubs, factories and even minutiae such as fountains and signal posts. Each map includes an introduction.

    These are the maps we publish for towns in Cambridgeshire and the Isle of Ely:
