Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Ordnance Survey OS 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.

We have an extensive range of historic Ordnance Survey Maps available here online. Click a link below find out more.
