You can make an eye catching feature of any wall at home or in the office with our historic map wallpaper sourced from the Ordnance Survey County Series mapping at Six-Inch to the mile (1:10,560), dating between 1888-1913. The six-inch maps are immensely valuable for local and family history, and is the most detailed topographic mapping that covers all of Great Britain, allowing most features in the landscape to be shown.
From the 1840s surveys were carried out at increasingly detailed scales and were used for many purposes including railway construction, geological survey and sanitary reform. In order to ensure complete and accurate coverage, the 1841 Survey Act had already given surveyors the right to ‘enter into and upon any land’ in the course of their duties.
The Ordnance Survey County Series captures Britain at the height of its imperial prosperity. All but the very largest cities still had clearly defined boundaries, but with little of the urban sprawl that has since overtaken so much of the landscape. The construction of over 16,000 miles of railway track had made its mark on the physical landscape.
The maps still clearly show many of Britain’s more ancient features and settlements, but these are now dominated by the new Victorian urban society which in many ways forms the basis of our own.
