Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Salford


This is our coverage of the City of Salford. Salford became a county borough in 1889 and was granted city status in 1926. The present County Borough of the City of Salford was created in 1974 with the amalgamation of Salford with the Borough of Eccles, the Borough of Swinton & Pendlebury, Irlam Urban District and Worsley Urban District. At the same time it became one of the ten metropolitan boroughs in the new county of Greater Manchester. It is now a unitary authority.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are 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.
