Publisher: Alan Godfrey Maps
Series: Old Ordnance Survey Maps
Format: Folded Map,
These maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area.
There are two versions of this map to show how the area has changed over the years. This map covers from Westgate Road and Bigg Market in the north to Peterborough Street in the south, Hawthorn Street in the west to Quarryfield Road in the east. Features on the 1894 map include Newcastle Swing Bridge, Redheugh Bridge, NER Railway Line and Central Station, Elswick Gas Works, North Durham Cricket Ground, All Saints Church, Stephenson's Monmument, Westgate Hill General Cemetery, N.E Railway Works, St Nicholas' Square and the Cathedral. On the reverse of both maps is a street directory for the area.
The map links up with Tyneside Sheet 10 Arthurs Hill & Fenham to the north-west, Tyneside Sheet 11 Central Newcastle to the north, Tyneside Sheet 12 Byker to the north-east, Tyneside Sheet 19 Gateshead East to the east, Tyneside Sheet 24 Felling to the south-east, Tyneside Sheet 23 Gateshead South to the south, Tyneside Sheet 22 Dunston to the south-west and Tyneside Sheet 17 Elswick to the west.
