    Also in the Godfrey Edition, some of our One Inch to the Mile maps cover parts of Co Durham. The following sheet covers most of Wearside:

  • 20/21 Tyneside & Wearside 1878 . Published in 1984, this was our first 'One Inch' reprint; it is double-sided and includes brief introductions by Frank Manders and Tom Corfe.

    Go to the One Inch page for further details of this series.


    Most maps in the Godfrey Edition are taken from the 25 inch to the mile map and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. They cost just £ 2.50 each. For a full list of County Durham maps, return to the North East page
