Old Maps of Alnwick

Historic Maps of Alnwick and the local area.

Hi, I used to travel via the great north road in the 1960s to near Durham, I can remember going through the arch above lots of times it was very narrow and you had to watch your car you could not speed then. Alnwick is a nice place and relatives of mine come from nearby lesbury, it definately made the difference when the by-pass was built it must have been a relief for the place.

The above picture was from 1948, I can tell this by the types of cars here, especially the light coloured one half hidden in the background, which actually is the most modern for this year.
