This site is useful if you would like a modern map of a street and location.  Only for UK but it's nice to see how the area looks now, also useful if you are wanting to visit the area or street as gives local transport links.

Maps online by county
« Reply #3 on: Wednesday 11 May 16 20:57 BST (UK) »
I found this website today whilst looking for something else i.e. tithe map info. Sound familiar?

http://www.buildinghistory.org/maps.shtml

That is the map part of the site but the homepage reveals its a "How to find the history of your house" website. Lots more stuff that I haven't yet explored, I just like maps a lot.

Some counties have more links than others; I checked Northumberland and found one omission i.e. the Northumberland Communities website that I use extensively for NBL maps and documents at http://communities.northumberland.gov.uk/  There is a facility for reporting omissions that is useful.

Gen in NBL England

Sheffield: TURNER
Middlesex: RYDER
