Herefordshire Maps for Sale

Map collectors might want to stop by the county records office on Saturday to peruse a selection of surplus Ordinance Survey maps dating from 1907-1925 that will be for sale.

Herefordshire Council’s archive service is to hold the sale at the record office in Harold, Hereford Street from 1pm – 4pm on Saturday 17 November.

The maps are on the old scale 25” to the mile, each locality having its own sheet. Prices will be up to £10 per sheet, depending on condition. A wide range of second hand books on local and general history will also be on sale.

Proceeds from the sale will be used to contribute to a purchase fund for a rare atlas of historical maps depicting the Hampton Court Estate.

Rhys Griffith, Senior Archivist said: “It’s quite fitting that this year’s sale will help in our bid to save an enormously important document for Herefordshire. We hope that the event will prove to be as popular as ever.”

A list of the maps for sale is available on the Archive Service web pages at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/archives.
