This is one in a series of maps of the Ruhrgebiet. It is taken from the British War Office 1:12,500 plans and reduced to approx 1:19,000. Published in 1945, prior to the Allied occupation of the area, the maps are especially good at showing industry, collieries and transport. They can be purchased through our On-line Mapshop.
Here are the details of our maps of the Gladbeck area:
This map covers Gladbeck and Buer. This was the first map prepared by the British in this series and is slightly less detailed than others, but still has much of interest. Gladbeck is well shown, and features include Hagenhof Estate, Schulten Estate, Graf Moltke Mine, Zweckel Mine, Feldhausen, Brabeck Manor House. Less information is given for Buer but features include Hugo Mine, Scholven Mine, Bergmannsgluck Mine, Westerholt Mine. Railways are clearly shown.
