Old Ordnance Survey Town Plans of Liverpool


This group of maps is from the highly detailed 5 foot to the mile maps published by the Ordnance Survey in the mid 19th century. We reduce them to a scale of a yard to the mile, making them more manageable in size while retaining the detail. They even show the interiors of some buildings and, of course, are much earlier in date than most other OS large scale maps.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

Please bear in mind that because of the large scale they cover very small areas, approximately 1056 x 704 yards.
