Queen Victoria's reign saw the first properly surveyed maps being published. The Ordnance Survey is the government department which undertakes this work. By comparing these maps made at different times we can see the way in which these communities developed

Choose from the list below. You may find it useful to compare these old maps with a modern Ordnance Survey map of the same area to see what changes have occurred. Unfortunately we cannot put these on our website.
