Old Ordnance Survey Maps of Cumberland


  • One inch to One mile map
  • These maps normally cover an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles and are especially good at showing railways, roads and canals, and at giving a broad view of a wider area. Each includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
  • This early One Inch Ordnance Survey map covers the area around Keswick. Coverage stretches from Loweswater eastward to Ullswater, and from Blencathra southward to the Borrowdale Fells. Major features include Helvellyn, Derwent Water, Thirlmere, Crummock Water, Ennerdale Fell, Buttermere, Whin Fell, Lorton Fells, Derwent Fells, Wythburn Fells, Matterdale Common, Saddleback or Blencathra, Skiddaw. The Cockermouth Keswick & Penrith Railway crosses much of the map. On the reverse we include a detailed map of Buttermere village, with a contemporary directory.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.-  Bassenthwaite, Borrowdale, Brackenthwaite, Buttermere, Embleton, Keswick, Loweswater, Matterdale, Mosser, Threlkeld, Whinfell, Wythburn,Hartsop, Patterdale
