Each sheet has been carefully joined together to form a full join-less map of the entirety of Great Britain. Whilst every effort has been made to accurately align each sheet using the known boundaries of Ordnance Survey historical maps, there may however be some areas that don't line up exactly. This is partly because maps from a century ago were not surveyed nor intended to be used with the greater accuracy of present-day technologies, but also potentially due to the warping of paper map sheets over time.
How Are The Old Maps Made?
We have an archive of thousands of high resolution scans of old maps which have gone through the time-consuming and meticulous process of carefully aligning each sheet (some OS map series's are formed of almost 4000 map sheets). Each has further been checked with historical map records for accuracy.
How Accurate Are The Old OS Maps?
The OS map series were and are typically the most accurate maps of Great Britain and although surveying equipment was not as accurate a century ago as it now is today, the maps are detailed down to individual buildings for certain map series's. However, whilst every effort has been made to accurately align each sheet using the known boundaries of Ordnance Survey historical maps, there may however be some areas that don't line up exactly. This is partly because maps from a century ago were not surveyed nor intended to be used with the greater accuracy of present-day technologies, but also potentially due to the warping of paper map sheets over time.
What Is Displayed On The Maps?
We offer a few options for old OS maps dating back to 1885, the OS County Series is the earliest and most detailed old OS map created and covers the whole of Great Britain. It is detailed enough to display individual buildings, landmarks, bodies of water, roads, etc even in remote areas. You will also be able to see a preview of your selected area.
