For a few areas of Liverpool and Manchester we have also reprinted some of the very early Five-foot plans. Originally published at a scale of 1:1056 or 5 feet to the mile, we have reduced them in scale to 1:1760 or a Yard to the Mile. The maps, though covering quite a small area, are quite wonderfully detailed, showing such features as capstans and mooring posts, lamp-posts, the layouts of back yards, and even the interior of certain buildings such as churches. For the urban historian they are perhaps the most fascinating maps ever published by the Ordnance Survey.
Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop.
Here are the details of maps for Toxteth Park:
This very detailed map covers part of the Toxteth Park area. Coverage stretches from Grafton Street eastward to Berkley Street, and from Upper Stanhope Street southward to Northumberland Street. Features include St Patrick's RC Chapel, St James church, Greenfield House, St Thomas church, Harrington School, Toxteth Hall, dye works, Park Road Brewery and streets of terraces and courts shown in detail. On the reverse we include a selection of street directory entries from an 1855 directory.
The map links up with Liverpool Sheet 35 Liverpool St James Mount to the north and 38 Brunswick Dock to the west.
