Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Walthamstow


We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, some 400 of them in the London area. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop where further information about titles is given.


Here are the details of maps for west Walthamstow:

  • London Sheet 14 Walthamstow West 1913 - published 1988; introduction by Jonathan Evans

    At present we have just one map for this area of Walthamstow (but see also map 15 Walthamstow East - links below). It covers the western part of Walthamstow, an area stretching from the River Lea eastward to Pearl Road and Greenleaf Road, from St Andrews Road and part of Higham Hill southward to the GER railway and St James Street station. Features on the map include Low and High Maynard Reservoirs, 4 other reservoirs, Tottenham Mills, engineering works on Blackhorse Lane, a stretch of the Tottenham & Forest Gate railway with Blackhorse Road and Walthamstow stations (though the map falls just short of the GER Walthamstow station; tramways. The many streets include High Street, Palmerston Road, Erskine Road, Winns Avenue, Pretoria Avenue, and many more. Selected street directory extracts are included.

    An index map showing the areas covered by this and adjacent maps is available here. The map links up with Sheets 9 Tottenham Marsh to the north, 13 Tottenham to the west, 15 Walthamstow East to the east, and 22 Walthamstow Marshes to the south.
