Old Ordnance Survey Maps of the Wirral
This is our coverage of Wirral. The Metropolitan Borough of Wirral was formed in 1974 with the amalgamation
of the County Borough of Birkenhead, County Borough of Wallasey, Municipal Borough of Bebington, Hoylake Urban District and Wirral Urban District. At
the same time it became part of the new Metropolitan County of Merseyside.
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.
