Historic maps

You can see  maps that cover the area of Waltham Chase from about 1860 to 1991 on the web courtesy of www.old-maps.co.uk.   You can specify an area, the enlargement and the date of the map.  You can then purchase these maps.

The National Library of Scotland (NLS) has a good selection of old maps. All the following from them are: ‘Reproduced with the permission of the National Library of Scotland‘ .

NLS also now has the ability to show an overlay of other maps as ‘Old maps of the village’ above. Please go to NLS (National Library of Scotland) to see this great facility in action.  View the OS 25 Inch 1890-1920 maps and others as an overlay on a selection of maps e.g. Bing satellite or OpenStreet maps. You can change the transparency of the overlay.

The map of Waltham Chase as at 1892-1908 can act as an accessory when examining the 1901 census.

    Hi Martin, good to meet you at the Ordnance Survey Master Class. I hope that mapping gives us more possibilities in the future.
    Best regards

    Thanks for sharing your link to these old maps at yesterday’s event at the Ordnance Survey in Southampton. It’s interesting to see the merging and sub-division of plots over time, and how names develop. I wish the old map tiles were more easily available to developers. Cheers…
