We have published more than 2,000 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, including a group for the Yorkshire 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. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a 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. Or visit The Index Page for a full list to the series and details of Prices.
Here are the details of maps for Guiseley:
This detailed map covers the town of Guiseley (or Guisley), a few miles north of Leeds, later famous for the fish and chip shop opened by Harry Ramsden in 1928, soon followed by a restaurant which would be visited from miles around.
