My House History Portfolio

  • Historical Ordnance Surveys centred around your Area of choice
  • Taken from the 1840s through to the 1960s
  • Full-colour photo taken in around 2000
  • Full-colour Ordnance Survey Landranger map of your chosen Area

Trace the geographical changes over 150 years of your home, property and local community.

Ever wondered what your road or home looked like a long, long time ago? Well here’s your chance to find out. The ‘My House History Portfolio’ typically features seven Ordnance Survey maps for your specified area. These might start as early as 1841 before concluding in the 1960s. And because each survey map would have subsequently been revised three to five times, your portfolio will also include all the variations.

In addition you will receive a full-colour aerial photo of your chosen Area, taken in about 2000, as well as a full-colour extract taken from the current Ordnance Survey Landranger map. Everything is then packaged up in a very smart-looking case that allows for easy insertion and removal of your pages.

Please note the portfolio is only available for addresses in England and Wales, and not for addresses in Scotland.
