What historic maps? • Town Plan maps at 1:500, 1:528 and 1:1056 scales published from 1848 and 1939, for towns with a population in excess of 4000 at the time of survey, • County Series maps at 1:2,500 and 1:10560 scales published between 1846 and 1969, • National Grid maps at 1:1,250, 1:2,500 and 1:10560/10,000 scales, published from 1948 – 1996 (before the introduction of the Ordnance Survey's digital Land-Line product). http://edina.ac.uk/digimap/description/products/historic_products.shtml

  7. Map revisions • A map series covers a time period, for example the County Series ran from the 1840s to the 1960s. • Within that time period, the maps were resurveyed periodically and the maps were revised. • Not all areas were resurveyed, only those with significant change. • 1st Edition 1854 – 1901 • Maps available in blue areas (note this map availability tool is in Historic Download)
