Waltham maps

There are some wonderful old maps of Waltham on this website. The oldest date back to Elizabethan times. They show how our small village changed in size and importance over the centuries.

These historically important maps were professionally photographed at Wigston Public Records Office.

  1. I think the old maps are a valuable addition to the website David. This website is rapidly shaping-up to be the most comprehensive historical record of Waltham EVER put together in one easily accessible place. Hopefully as time progresses more & more people will come forward with documents, photos, memories etc. Well done!

  2. Thanks Richard. Like you, I think the maps are a fascinating record of the village. If you click on the top image, and then click the buttons that appear on the right hand side of the pop-up window, you can see the maps in chronological order.

    I also think they’d make great framed prints – and maybe even a set of greetings cards to sell in the Post Office. Maybe a job for some time in the future!
