'OLD' MID CALDER MAPS PAGE

 

This is an 1853 map of Mid Calder

Image produced from the www.old-maps.co.uk service with permission of
 Landmark Information Group Ltd. and Ordnance Survey

The National Library Of Scotland also have an Old Maps resource at http://www.nls.uk/maps/

"Among the National Library of Scotland's greatest treasures are the earliest surviving
detailed maps of Scotland, made by Timothy Pont over 400 years ago, in the 1580s and 1590s"

We are 'fortunate' that one of these covers parts of West Lothian (although 'upside down' in today's format (top is South!) and quite difficult to read! - but remember maps then were in their infancy!)
