Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Cheshire

  • These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction.
  • They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here are the details of maps for Crewe:

  • Cheshire Sheet 56.07a Crewe 1874 - published 2011; intro by Derrick Pratt. ISBN.978-1-84784-526-9
  • Cheshire Sheet 56.07b Crewe 1908 - published 1994; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-0-85054-689-7
  • Cheshire Sheet 56.08 Crewe 1908 - published 1994; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN. 978-0-85054-687-3

    These three maps give very detailed coverage of Crewe, including the town, the railway station and much of the railway works.

    The 1874 version is double-sided for maximum coverage. The main map covers the town, with coverage from Beech Street southward to Nantwich Road, and westward to Coppenhall Heys. Features include the LNWR Steel Works, Old Works, The Valley, Market Square area, engine sheds etc. On the reverse we include the western part of sheet 56.08, extending coverage eastward to include the railway station, Manchester Bridge and Crewe-gate Farm

    For 1908 we cover the town in 2 maps. Sheet 56.07 covers the town centre, with coverage from Beech Street southward to Nantwich Road, and westward to Queen's Park. Features include LNWR Crewe Works and much of Central and South Wards. Sheet 56.08 Crewe East covers the railway station area and gives extended coverage east to Crewe Green.

    Note that the two 1908 maps also include sections of the early 1874 maps on the reverse. Because of this you may not need to purchase both the 1874 and 1908 versions.
