1859 Valuation Map of the Town of Limavady
The numbers in the Griffith's Printed [Tenement] Valuation for the streets in the town of Limavady [or Newtownlimavady as it was known then] match the numbers on the 1859 Valuation Map for the town (VAL/2/D/5/4). This map was produced at a scale of 5 feet to the mile. Obviously to present it on this CD I have had to break it down into nine overlapping maps. To access each of the nine maps click on a number on one of the squares below. A map, showing a section of the town, will open within this window and you will be able to move from it to any of the other eight maps, or you can return to the index map. Incidentally, maps 1 to 8 overlap sufficiently for you to reproduce [in hard copy] an overall map of the town. However, because the maps are photographic scans, the edges do not always match perfectly, particularly as you move away from the centre of the photo. Note that map 9 concentrates on Catherine Street which cuts across maps. 1, 2, 6 and 7.
