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
