Maps: Collections at the Matlock Record Office

Updated: Monday, February 20, 2012   |   Belper Historical & Genealogical Website

This page contains information about, and record numbers of, the Maps and Plans of Belper held by the Record Office at Matlock.

I do not possess any of these maps, and they are not on my website. This page is simply to help you locate what you need, and go with the appropriate record number to the Record Office to see the document.
