Maps and Plans
An extensive collection of maps of the Coventry and Warwickshire area including Ordnance Survey maps from 1887, Tithe maps, and Board of Health maps, copies of which can be seen in the Reading Room during opening hours without appointment.
We hold building plans relating to the city’s commercial and domestic properties dating from the late 19th century until 2000, which are indexed by street until 1993. These are great for seeing the original layout of your house or changes which have been made to it. Whole copies may be produced on request.
We also have a large collection of plans from the city’s architects and engineers department which include bomb damage survey maps and reconstruction plans. These and building plans are available in the Research Room by prior appointment.
