Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Thelwall


We have published more than 2,500 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, including a large group in Lancashire. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop. Or visit The Index Page for a full list to the series and details of Prices.
