Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Dudley

  • We have a range of detailed maps for Dudley Metropolitan Borough.
  • All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

  • Dudley was historically a detached exclave of Worcestershire, surrounded by Staffordshire. It became a County Borough in 1889.
  • In 1966 it took over some adjacent areas of Staffordshire, including Brierley Hill UDC, and became part of Staffordshire.
  • In 1974 Dudley amalgamated with Halesowen and Stourbridge Municipal Boroughs, both from Worcestershire (though until 1844 Halesowen had been a detached exclave of Shropshire) to form Dudley Metropolitan Borough in the new West Midlands Metropolitan County.
  • See This Page for more information on Worcestershire's local government history.

  • These are the maps we publish in Dudley MBC. Note that we include maps from both the Staffordshire and Worcestershire series. In practise, many maps have sections from both counties.
