ORIGINAL COUNTY / AREA MAPS

[mostly 20c. Ordnance survey]

There are thousands to choose from – they date from 1947 to the early 1990’s.

I aim to provide good quality original maps at an affordable price. Most maps are in excellent condition and have seen little, if any use. Remains of library stamp[s] may be present on the outer margins. If you are unsure which map covers your particular village, farm, etc. [only a few street names will be shown as it depends on the available space on each map] please enquire if you need help.

The 'Provisional/1st series' [around 2000 maps] are the 'flat' [unfolded] edition in colour. [scale 2 ½"/1:25,000]. They were published between 1946 and 1977 using the national grid letter codes and numbers ['HP40' Baltasound [Shetland] to 'TV69' in Eastbourne]. They are ideal for framing and show many features that have since disappeared – especially the railways before the Beeching axe and wartime airfields.

The later '2nd/Pathfinder series' maps in colour are folded. [scale 2 ½"/1:25,000]. They were published between 1965 and 1994. There are usually two maps combined using the same 'letter & number' codes as the 1st series. This later changed to a simpler 'number' system [1 to 1370].

The maps vary greatly depending on scale, date, size etc.  We have created a page of sample map images so you can see the type of information that may be included in your map and an indication of how it will look.  If you are unsure which map to choose please get in touch and we can provide more details.  VIEW THE SAMPLE MAPS HERE
