Tow Law stands over 1, 000 feet up, and developed in the mid 19th century with the growth of the Weardale Iron Co; the population peaked at 5, 005 in 1881 but had fallen to 4, 371 by 1901; the iron works closed in the 1880s, local ore being too expensive to extract. However, this is still a busy map with several collieries and railways. Features include the town itself, with cattle market, Dan's Castle, Tow Law Iron Works (a smaller works run by Joseph Bond), station, St Philip & St James church, South Cornsay, Black Prince Colliery. Further east the map includes West Thornley Colliery, Hedleyhope Colliery and the NER's Hedleyhope Incline. All the collieries have extensive coke ovens. On the reverse is a small extract of adjacent sheet 25.10 extending coverage to Inkerman. A directory is also included.
About the 'Alan Godfrey Old Ordnance Survey Maps' Series
Alan Godfrey has so far published over 2,000 of these detailed street maps for towns in England, Wales and Scotland.
The Maps are highly detailed, taken from the old Ordnance Survey 1/2500 scale plans and reprinted at about 14 inches to the mile (1:4,340). Most maps cover about one mile (1.6kms) by one and a half miles (2.4kms) - Adjoining sheets can be assembled together to provide wider coverage.
They cover towns in great detail, showing individual houses and property boundaries, railway tracks, factories, churches, mills, canals, tramways and even minutiae such as dockside cranes, fountains, signal posts, pathways, sheds, wells, etc.
A number of locations are covered by two or three maps, each covering different time periods allowing you to see the development of the area over half a century or more.
In addition, Alan Godfrey are now offering some coloured maps - making use of the original hand-coloured versions from Ordnance Survey.
Alan Godfrey’s reproductions use the sheet reference sequence of the original Ordnance Survey maps which were arranged by county. We have added county and city tags to the vast majority of the maps, using these filters will make it easier to find the map you want! - However, if you are struggling please just get in contact and we will be happy to help.

All items that are in stock will show a delivery timescale of 1-3 working days. If your order consists solely of these items, then dispatch is within 1 working day of purchase with the exception of framed and customised items which may take up to 14 days.
If your order is a non-stock item, the delivery timescale on that item will show as 3-10 working days on the product details. In these instances, dispatch is usually 3-7 working days with delivery in 5-10 working days. If your item is delayed for any reason, we will update your order to provide an explanation of the delay, although it is not always possible to say how long the delay will be. The item will be kept on order for up to three months and supplied to you when it becomes available. After 3 months, we will cancel the order or the remainder of the order unless you ask us to keep it on back order for longer. Incomplete orders will be held until the remaining items come into stock, unless we anticipate a long delay. At our discretion, incomplete orders may be sent out as partial shipments if we anticipate that an item may take some time coming in to stock.
EU customers - IMPORTANT: You will be required to pay import VAT (tax) at your local rate to your postal delivery service before any goods are delivered. Since 2021 you have not been charged British VAT (at 20%) on any purchases or P&P charges, however, with effect from 1 January 2022, the rules regarding importing from outside the EU changed and import VAT is now payable on any value of goods imported into the EU. This is separate to any tariff which may or may not be chargeable on the goods due to their country of origin. Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Failure to pay the import charges will result in the goods being returned to the UK. Our terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this situation.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Cancellations - personalised/bespoke items
Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
