Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Sunderland


  • We have a good range of maps in and around Sunderland. All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop

  • 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. Each map includes an introduction. For further details click on the links below.
