These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of this detailed map, showing how the area changed across the years. Each map is double-sided for maximum coverage.
The main map covers the centre and north of the town, with coverage extending north to Pelaw Farm and Pelaw House, westward to Stellagill Wood, and eastward to The Haughs. Features (taken from the 1915 version) include Chester Bridge, most of Front Street, Hop Garth, North and South Burns, Motor Bus Depot, Brewery, Infectious Diseases Hospital, Pelaw House, South Pelaw Colliery, High Flatts, NER Annfield Plain Branch, NER Pontop & South Shields Branch, Hippodrome etc.
