Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Newcastle upon Tyne


  • This is our coverage of Newcastle upon Tyne. In 1974 it became a Metropolitan Borough and was amalgamated with Gosforth Urban District, Newburn Urban District, parts of Castle Ward Rural District, and the village of Westerhope. At the same time Newcastle became part of the new county of Tyne & Wear.
