Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Doncaster MBC


This is our coverage of Doncaster, historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. Today's Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster dates from 1974 and the amalgamation of the County Borough of Doncaster with Adwick le Street Urban District, Bentley with Arksey Urban District, Conisbrough Urban District, Mexborough Urban District, Tickhill Urban District, Doncaster Rural District and Thorne Rural District. At the same time it became part of the new South Yorkshire Metropolitan County. Since 1986 it has been a unitary authority.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 14 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 covers an area of a mile and a half by one mile, and includes an introduction. Click on the links below for further details.
