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 34:

  • One Inch Sheet 34 East Cleveland 1865-84 - published 2001; intro by Robert Woodhouse. ISBN.978-1-84151-266-2

    This early One Inch Ordnance Survey map covers the area from Redcar and Guisbrough eastward to Staithes and Runswick Bay. The moors - Guisbrough Moor, Commondale Moor, Danby Low Moor - along the foot of the map show that we are on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. Various railways curve through the area, including the Guisbrough & Saltburn line, with mineral lines for iron ore. The seaside resort of Saltburn is still just a village. On the reverse is a detailed map of Loftus, accompanied by a directory.

    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 given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
