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 map, showing how the area changed across the years. The maps cover the centre of the town, with coverage stretching from the Market Place northward to North Road station; St Andrews church at Haughton le Skerne is in the top right corner. The main NER railway runs north-south through the centre of the map.
Features include engine shed and railway approaches, Parkgate Junction, the busy junction and railway crossing, Darlington Forge, Darlington Steel & Iron Works, Skerne Iron & Steel Works, Alliance Works, all with their railway sidings and connections; Haughton Road Brewery, NER Fighting Cocks Loop Line, St James church, Borough Hospital, Albert Hill, St Cuthbert's church, Priestgate Works, Bondgate, High Row, Blackwellgate, Skinnergate, Parkgate, Northgate, Hope Town Lane, tramways, Town Hall, Hopetown goods station etc
The maps link up with Sheet 55.02 Darlington North to the north, 55.05 Darlington West to the west and 55.10 Darlington South to the south.

NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
