Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Halifax and Calderdale


  • We have published a range of maps for Calderdale, which includes the major town of Halifax. All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop or from selected bookshops in the area. In addition to the large scale maps of principal towns, we are also publishing reprints of the Inch to the Mile maps of the area.

    The following maps are all taken from the OS 25" maps and reduced to a scale of approximately 15 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. Obviously they cover quite a small area, normally a mile by a mile and a half each.
