Old Ordnance Survey Inch to the Mile Maps

  • These maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here is information about Sheet 27:

  • One Inch Sheet 27 Hartlepool & East Durham 1913 - published 2005; intro by David Butler. ISBN.978-1-84151-836-7

    An essential map for anyone interested in the history of County Durham. This covers the area from Durham itself (just east of the cathedral) eastward to the coast and Hartlepool, and from Hetton-le-Hole southward to Sedgefield. Several long closed or mothballed railways are shown: the Hartlepool-Ferryhill branch, the Stockton & Castle Eden branch, the Durham & Sunderland branch, the Sunderland & Hartlepool branch. There are also numerous colliery villages with their mineral lines. On the reverse is a detailed map of Trimdon village.

    It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are provided for those for which detailed plans are available.
