Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Essex
All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop or from selected bookshops in the area.
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 covers an area of a mile by a mile and a half. Each map includes an introduction. For further details click on the links below.
I have divided Essex into two groups. This page covers those towns in the old GLC area, in the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest, the so-called 'London-in-Essex'. Further maps for parts of this area are in
our London series. For maps outside London go to the Essex county page.
See This Page for a summary of the county's local government history.
These are the detailed maps currently available for 'Essex-in-London' (or 'London-in-Essex'):
