Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Newham


We have excellent coverage for the London Borough of Newham, which was formed in 1965 from the two County Boroughs of East Ham and West Ham, plus the North Woolwich part of the former Municipal Borough of Woolwich. The area includes maps from both our London and Essex series, which link up with each other. All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are all 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.
