Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Liverpool


This is our coverage of the City of Liverpool. Liverpool, historically in Lancashire, was a borough in the 13th century. It became a City in 1880 and a County Borough in 1889. In 1974 it was reincorporated as a Metropolitan Borough in the new metropolitan county of Merseyside.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are 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.
