Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Essex

  • These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction.
  • They are available through our On-line Mapshop

  • Here are the details of maps for Tilbury:

  • Essex Sheet 89.01 Tilbury Riverside & Gravesend Reach 1895 - published 1998; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-84151-015-6

    This detailed map covers a fascinating area of the Thames, showing Tilbury Riverside on the north, and Gravesend's waterfront to the south. The map does not include Tilbury Town, but shows the (now closed) Riverside station, Tilbury Hotel, several railway junctions and lines into the docks. Also shown are the Tidal Basin, Worlds End pub, Tilbury Market. Tilbury Fort is shown, but sadly left blank for security reasons. On the Kent side we have West Street, the LCDR pier, Clifton Baths, Town Pier and Royal Terrace Pier. The map also includes directories for West Tilbury and Chadwell St Mary. Though the map does have a lot of water, mud and marshland it is a fascinating portrait of this Thames gateway, a reminder of Tilbury's days as a major passenger embarkation point, if only for a daytrip to Gravesend.

    To the south the map links up with (and slightly overlaps) Kent Sheet 10.07 Gravesend.
