Old Ordnance Survey Maps of the City of Sheffield


This is our coverage of Sheffield, historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. Sheffield received its municipal charter in 1843, became a County Borough in 1889, and was created a City in 1893. The present Metropolitan Borough was formed in 1974 with the amalgamation of the City of Sheffield with Stocksbridge Urban District. At the same time it became part of the new South Yorkshire Metropolitan County. Since 1986 it has been a unitary authority.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are 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.
