Old Ordnance Survey Maps of the Soke of Peterborough


  • We have a range of detailed maps for Peterborough and we also cover the whole Soke of Peterborough at the Inch to the Mile scale. Here are the details.
  • All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

  • Though historically part of Northamptonshire, from 1889 until 1965 the Soke of Peterborough was an independent county. Since 1974 it has been amalgamated with Cambridgeshire, the Isle of Ely and Huntingdonshire into one county of Cambridgeshire.
  • See This page for a summary of its local government history.

  • The following maps are all taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 15 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 map includes an introduction.
