Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Sussex
Here is our selection of maps for Sussex. All include an introduction to the history
of the area and most also include extracts from an early directory. Coverage includes the major seaside towns of Bognor (before it became Bognor Regis), Brighton and Worthing; the
cathedral city of Chichester; Lewes, Petworth and Rye, each of them steeped in history; Haywards Heath and Three Bridges, which
developed as major commuter centres on the growth of the railways. Lots of variety here. We shall be adding more maps in
due course, so watch this space; maps of Newhaven and Battle are currently in preparation. Further information about individual maps is given on our
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.
