Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Northamptonshire


  • We have a range of detailed maps for Northamptonshire towns and we also cover the whole county at the Inch to the Mile scale. Here are the details.
  • All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

  • Northamptonshire County Council was formed in 1889. At the same time the Soke of Peterborough became an independent county and its maps are listed on a separate page.
  • The county is divided into seven districts: Corby, Daventry, East Northamptonshire (based on Thrapston), Kettering, Northampton, South Northamptonshire (based on Towcester), and Wellingborough. For a summary of the county's administrative history go to This Page
