Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Tameside MBC


  • This is our coverage of Tameside MBC. The Metropolitan Borough of Tameside was created in 1974 with the amalgamation of the Borough of Ashton-under-Lyne, Borough of Mossley, Audenshaw Urban District, Denton Urban District and Droylsden Urban District, all from Lancashire, with the Borough of Stalybridge, Borough of Dukinfield, Borough of Hyde and Longdendale Urban District, all from Cheshire. Tameside became one of the ten metropolitan boroughs in the new Greater Manchester Metropolitan County, and since 1986 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.
