SHEFFIELD WEST 1892 COLOURED EDITION - YORKSHIRE SHEET 294.07a
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 1892 version is in full colour, taken from the beautiful 1st edition OS handcoloured map.
Each map covers the western part of Sheffield, with coverage stretching from Broad Lane westward to Crookes, and from Daniel Hill Street southward to Broomspring Lane. The eastern half of the map is crowded with terraced streets, including many rows of back-to-backs, while further west the housing is rather more spacious.
Major features include St George's church, University College, St Anne's church, Royal Hospital, St Philip's church, Royal Infirmary, Netherthorpe, Port Mahon, tramways, Mappin Art Gallery, Weston Park, Old Great Dam and New Dam, Upperthorpe, Hadfield Dam, Weston Park Museum, Howard Hill, St Mary's church, Crookes, St Thomas church, Steel Bank. We include extracts from a street directory on the reverse of each map.
The map links up with Sheets 294.03 Sheffield Neepsend to the north, 294.06 Rivelin Glen to the west, 294.08 Sheffield to the east and 294.11 Ecclesall Road to the south.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
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.
