A guide to finding and using printed and digital maps.

Welcome to the Maps guide.  Use the tabs above to explore our resources.

The University Library has a collection of about 70,000 maps and atlases.  The majority of maps are reference only, but there is a Field collection on the 4th Floor which can be borrowed with your Campus/Library card.  Atlases are mostly on the 4th Floor and can also be borrowed.  Atlases with the call number 'Oversize MF' are shelved separately on the 4th  Floor.

If you need to consult maps please contact Judith Fox, the Map Librarian. She can advise on the types of maps available and guide you to the ones most suited to your needs.

Berkshire fox-hunting map

Berkshire: fox-hunting map

This map was originally produced by J. & C. Walker in about 1849 to show the districts covered by the various hunts in Berkshire.  It was part of “Hobson’s fox-hunting atlas”, first issued by Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Co.  The hunt districts are outlined in colour, and places where foxhounds meet are shown as dots.  This copy was presented to the Department of Geography by H.R. Beaton in 1931.
