The Ordnance Survey 25 inch to the mile (1:2,500) County Series, dating between 1841-1920 is the most detailed Ordnance Survey mapping, available for most parts of England, Scotland and Wales. The maps allow practically every feature in the landscape to be shown. They provide good detail of all buildings, streets, railways, industrial premises, parkland, farms, woodland, and rivers. Their bold style and informative symbols and abbreviations allow easy interpretation for a wide range of uses.

A small number of the maps were coloured, with the colour applied by hand, initially by boys paid on a piece work basis, and later by women. Not all sheets were coloured, but those that were coloured used:

  • Blue for water features
  • Burnt sienna for roads
  • Carmine for buildings made of brick or stone
  • Grey for buildings made of wood or iron.

Please Note: Your wallpaper mural is custom made to your exact wall dimensions and is split into the minimum number of panels possible to minimise the number of joins. This means panel widths can be between 800mm to 1200mm wide, dependant on the size of the wall.

“Brilliant company, great service, fabulous product. We ordered a historic ordenance survey wallpaper for our hallway. The wallpaper came with clear installation instructions and our builders were able to paste up the three pieces easily. It has transformed a dull hallway into somewhere special and interesting to us and those who visit!“

Rebekah Kirby

“We added a frame as we thought it would go well with the panelling. We had an issue with the overlap and standard wallpaper paste didn’t seem to do the trick, Rob had to get some heavy duty stuff specifically for vinyl that seemed to work. The map is lovely and is a great talking/ focal point to my husbands new study room/ snug bar! Thanks for all your help along the way.”
