Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Warrington


This is our coverage of the Borough of Warrington.. Warrington became a County Borough in 1900. In 1974 a new Borough of Warrington was formed, amalgamating the County Borough of Warrington with Lymm Urban District, Warrington Rural District, and parts of Golborne Urban District, Runcorn Rual District and Whiston Rural District. At the same time, though historically part of Lancashire, Warrington was transferred to Cheshire.

All maps are available from our On-line Mapshop.

The following titles are all 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.
