Hartlepool & East Durham 1913 - England Sheet 27
This folded map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is produced by Alan Godfrey and covers an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles. It shows railways, roads and canals, and gives a broad view of a wider area. It also includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
An essential map for anyone interested in the history of County Durham. This covers the area from Durham itself (just east of the cathedral) eastward to the coast and Hartlepool, and from Hetton-le-Hole southward to Sedgefield. Several long closed or mothballed railways are shown: the Hartlepool-Ferryhill branch, the Stockton & Castle Eden branch, the Durham & Sunderland branch, the Sunderland & Hartlepool branch. There are also numerous colliery villages with their mineral lines. On the reverse is a detailed map of Trimdon village.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Links are provided for those for which detailed plans are available.
