Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Yorkshire

  • 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 Goole:

  • Yorkshire 237.16a Goole 1890 - published 2019; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-1-78721-209-1
  • Yorkshire 237.16b Goole 1905 - published 1986, 2nd edition 2004; intro by John Griffiths. ISBN.978-1-84151-711-7

    We have published two versions of this detailed map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1890 version is taken from the beautiful hand-coloured 1st Edition OS map. The maps cover the town of Goole, which was a small village until the 1820s but where the Aire & Calder Navigation Company then established a new town. Docks were then built for the transhipment of goods from the Knottingley & Goole Canal to seagoing vessels.

    Our maps cover most of the town and features include station, St John's church, North Street, Booth Ferry Road, Clifton Gardens, Shuffleton, Tompits Holmes and the streets and houses in these areas. The docks are the dominant feature, including Railway Dock, Aldam Dock, Ship Dock, Barge Dock, Ouse Dock, The Basin, Bonding Dock, each shown with railway connections, swing bridges, locks, cranes, even mooring posts.

  • You can order maps direct from our On-line Mapshop. For other information and prices, and other areas, go to The Index Page.
  • Maps in the Godfrey Edition are taken from the 25 inch to the mile map and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Follow these links for a complete list of our Yorkshire maps or simply those for today's East Riding.
