Ordnance Survey Town Plans of England and Wales, 1840s-1890s

decorative graphic

The most detailed topographic mapping by Ordnance Survey covering towns with more than 4,000 people in England and Wales from the 1840s to the 1890s.

Our coverage currently just includes 38 towns in south-west England, as well as London (1893-96), but it will expand geographically as scanning continues. We are also pleased to be collaborating with the British Library in this project which will allow us to fill gaps in our sheet coverage.
