Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Hartlepool


This is our coverage of the Borough of Hartlepool. The County Borough of Hartlepool was formed in 1967 with the merger of the Borough of Hartlepool with the County Borough of West Hartlepool, together with the parish of Seaton Carew. In 1974 this together with some villages from Stockton Rural District became a new Borough of Hartlepool, a district within the short-lived Cleveland County. It is now a unitary authority.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

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.
