Old Ordnance Survey Maps of St Helens


This is our coverage of the Metropolitan Borough of St Helens. This was created in 1974, combining the County Borough of St Helens with Haydock Urban District, Newton-le-Willows Urban District and Rainford Urban District, plus some outlying parishes. It then moved to the new Merseyside county and since 2014 has been a member of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are all 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.
