Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Stockport MBC


This is our coverage of Stockport. Stockport, historically part of Cheshire, became a County Borough in 1889. In the early 20th century it expanded into Lancashire by absorbing Reddish and the Heatons. The present Metropolitan Borough of Stockport was formed in 1974 as the amalgamation of the County Borough of Stockport with Bredbury & Romiley Urban District, Cheadle & Gatley Urban District, Hazel Grove & Bramhall Urban District, and Marple Urban District. At the same time it bceame part of Greater Manchester. Our coverage includes maps in both the Cheshire and Lancashire series.

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.
