Old Ordnance Survey Maps of the City of York


  • This is our coverage of the City of York. Historically York was the county town of Yorkshire and separate from the three Ridings. In 1974 it became part of the new North Yorkshire county, but in 1996 it became a unitary authority. See here for the other maps in North Yorkshire.
  • 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.
