Old and Historic Ordnance Survey OS UK Maps
"I'm told there are people who don't care for maps, but I find that hard to believe." - Robert Louis Stevenson
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.
