Ordnance Survey Map Prints

Beautifully detailed prints of first-edition Ordnance Survey maps, hand-drawn between 1840 and 1930. Packed with fascinating, finely-reproduced detail, they cover 2 miles by 1 mile.

In 1791 the Board of Ordnance established a body to survey Britain; the first 1-inch map, which showed Kent, was produced in 1801. The other counties of the United Kingdom followed. Surveying involved the laborious measuring and mapping of a myriad topographical features, including hills, roads, field boundaries, houses and woods.

These special first-edition maps were updated as the Victorian age progressed; new roads and railways were added, and major new buildings such as factories, gas and water works marked. It is from these enhanced 6-inch maps that the Frith Ordnance Survey maps have been created.

Prices range from £42 to £295
