MANCHESTER HIGHER ARDWICK 1849 - LANCASHIRE SHEET M40
For a few areas of Liverpool and Manchester we have also reprinted some of the very early Five-foot plans. Originally published at a scale of 1:1056 or 5 feet to the mile, we have reduced them in scale to 1:1760 or a Yard to the Mile. The maps, though covering quite a small area, are quite wonderfully detailed, showing such features as capstans and mooring posts, lamp-posts, the layouts of back yards, and even the interior of certain buildings such as churches. For the urban historian they are perhaps the most fascinating maps ever published by the Ordnance Survey.
This extremely detailed map covers the southern part of Ardwick, with coverage stretching from the eastern half of Ardwick Green eastward to Hyde Road, and from Ardwick station southward to Devonshire Street. This was a developing suburb, with several large villas in the grounds. Features include Ardwick Cemetery, Hyde Place, Manchester Hyde & Mottram turnpike trust, Manchester & Buxton turnpike trust, Higher Ardwick Lodge, etc. On the reverse we include street directory entries for Chancery Lane, Fairfield Street, Garden Street, Tipping Street.
The map links up with Manchester Sheets 35 Upper Ardwick to the north, 39 Chorlton on Medlock to the west.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
