Map of West Yorkshire - 1800
« on: Wednesday 21 January 15 14:36 GMT (UK) »
Where can I find a good map of West Yorkshire around the year 1800?

Also, are there any I could purchase to hang on my wall?

Thank you so much.

Peter Harrington has loads of maps for sale - some quite expensive. He has a gallery in Fulham Road, if you can get there.

You could try maps.nls.uk.
The National Library of Scotland has extended its online map collection to include some old English Ordnance Survey maps. I have not checked to see if they have Yorkshire, but reckon it would be worth a look.

I like Thomas Jeffrey's map of Yorkshire 1771. Our local library has a copy but you can buy it online at
