Old OS Town Plans of Liverpool
For a few areas of Liverpool and Manchester we have also reprinted some of the very early Five-foot plans. Originally published at a scale of
1:1056 or 5 feet to the mile, we have reduced them in scale to 1:1760 or a Yard to the Mile. The maps, though covering quite a small area, are
quite wonderfully detailed, showing such features as
capstans and mooring posts, lamp-posts, the layouts of back yards, and even the interior of certain buildings such as churches. For the urban historian they are
perhaps the most fascinating maps ever published by the Ordnance Survey.
Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop.
