Old Ordnance Survey Inch to the Mile Maps

  • These maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village. They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here is information about Sheet 97:

  • One Inch Sheet 97 The Lower Mersey: Runcorn & Warrington 1913 - published 2005; intro by Alan Crosby. ISBN.978-1-84151-820-6

    This Inch to the Mile map covers the busy and fascinating area of the Mersey from Allerton and Garston eastward to Warrington and Thelwall; coverage north-south is from Knowsley Hall to Helsby. The Manchester Ship Canal runs through the map, and major towns include Widnes, Runcorn and Warrington, with all their industrial history. Other towns on the map are Frodsham, Precot and Ellesmere Port. On the reverse we include a map of Preston Brook, on the Bridgewater Canal.

    It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
