Many people enjoy maps and surely there can be no better in the world than those produced by Ordnance Survey, although West Bridgford is split into four parts in the large-scale 6 inch series. The links below take you to publicly available old maps of West Bridgford and the surrounding area. The First Edition 6 inch map (the SW part) captures, in isolation, the very first houses built in West Bridgford as Musters began to sell off his land: the three pairs of semi-detached houses built by John Rushworth on plot 2 of the sale plan.
On all the maps, you can zoom and drag to move the area viewed. But, before you browse the old maps, can you resist an aerial tour of the modern West Bridgford afforded by Google’s satellite imagery?
