Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

This old, full colour and exceedingly rare map shows the ancient county of the West Riding of Yorkshire as it was in 1611. It was created by John Speed and engraved by Jodocus Hondius, and originally published in Speed's "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine".

The natural size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm) but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 60x80 inches (150x200cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.

The West Riding of Yorkshire roughly corresponds to all of West Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire today and contains all of the big cities that now populate the metropolitan county of West Yorkshire: York, Bradford, Sheffield, Leeds, Wakefield, Calderdale (Halifax) and Kirkless (Huddersfield).

In the top right corner is a detailed engraving of York, then (and still) the capital of this ancient county.

Most of West Yorkshire's most populous towns and cities have already popped into existence by the 1600s. Here are some of the West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire places clearly visible in this old map: Skipton, Knaresborough, Harrogate, Selby, Tadcaster, Halifax, Wetherby, Pontefract, Wakefield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Otley, Batley, Dewsbury, Keighley, Castleford, Brighouse, Pudsey, Morley, Shipley, Bingley, and many more. But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain West Yorkshire town or village is on this map.

This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Yorkshire or who has Yorkshire in their heart.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

Our museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
