Handmade to order
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 80 inches (200cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
I also have the same map, but with the original handcolouring. It may better suit your tastes or room decor.
Many of the towns, villages and cities in the Bishopric of Durham are already visible in this map.
In the top right is a detailed engraving of Durham the city. Sunderland is also visible on this map, before it became part of Tyne and Wear. Newcastle, Gateshead and other nearby towns on the River Tyne can also be seen.
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 County Durham town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Durham or who has northeast England 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 acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
