Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Hackney


We have very good coverage for the London Borough of Hackney, which was formed in 1965 from the Metropolitan Boroughs of Hackney, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington.

The following titles are all 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. All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.


These are the detailed maps for Hackney in our London series. Several also include substantial sections of adjacent boroughs.
