Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Hull
For the central area of Hull we have reprinted four of the very early Five-foot plans, here reduced in scale to 1:1760 or a Yard to the Mile.
The maps, though covering quite a small area, are extremely detailed, showing such features as
capstans and mooring posts, lamp-posts, the layouts of back yards, and even the interior of certain public buildings. They
are available through our On-line Mapshop
Here are the details of the map for the Queens Dock area:
Kingston upon Hull: sheet 8 Hull Queen's Dock 1853 - published 2009; intro by Susan Neave. ISBN.978-1-84784-248-0
This wonderfully detailed map covers the area around and to the north of Queen's Dock, including Mason Street, Sykes Street, New George Street,
Charter House, Kingston Square, Salthouse Lane, Great Union Street, part of Witham, North Bridge, Hodgson Street. Taken from an early engraved OS map it appears a little faint at first, but closer
inspection finds a mass of detail, with courtyards named, and items such as timber yards, dry docks etc all shown - even details such as cranes and mooring posts - albeit for a relatively small area.
The map links up with sheets 7 Hull Prospect St to the west and 12 Hull (Old Town) to the south.
You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop.

The town plans are taken from the OS five-foot plans and reduced to a scale of a yard to the mile.
