An old map showing Mexborough in the 1830s forms part of an exhibition at Clifton Park Museum in Rotherham.

The Tithe Map and Award was drawn up in 1839 and is now on display with other old maps in the Rotherham Archives and Local Studies Service search room.

Other items being showcased include a copy of a 1940s OS map of Rotherham and two books on how to read maps from the Yorkshire and Lancashire Regiment Collection.
