The Yards of Whitby

A complete plan of the yards of Whitby at a scale of 1:1250, about 50 inches to a mile. It shows all the yards as they currently are, giving all their names. No other map ever published has shown all the yards in such detail and completeness. Includes an index and quick location reference.

I am currently trying to organise getting this reprinted. The map is available electronically here:

Here is an extract from the 1905 Ordnance Survey 1:1250 plan of Whitby, showing the railway station. As can be seen, the yards are shown, but very few of them are named. This image is from the Godfrey Edition reprint, available for £2.10 in many bookshops.
