Folded Sheet Maps

Whatever your reason for being interested in the past, these Historical Folded Sheet Maps will help make history come to life. Each one has been created by scanning historical Ordnance Survey maps from the 19th and early 20th centuries and then enlarging and combining them so that they match modern scales.

For each area these are available in 4 key series, the first three were published at different times between 1804 and 1926. The fourth series 'Past & Present' provides a snapshot of the area from four different periods, including the present day.

Prices from £14.99 to £69.99

Old Series Maps

Taken from the first complete survey of the country in the age of the canal and the horse and cart that were first published between 1805 and 1874. The maps elegantly capture the final decades of an agrarian society that was soon to be over-run by new transport links, rapid population growth and urban expansion. Numerous features of the past still surround us, waiting to be re-discovered. These maps help point the way.
