HISTORICAL MAP WALLPAPER FROM 1841-1920

Historic Ordnance Survey Map Wallpaper: 25 Inch To The Mile (1:2,500)

If you love local history then one of our customised historic, detailed 25 inch map wallpaper murals could be just the thing to inspire you.

The Ordnance Survey 25 inch to the mile County Series (1841-1920) is the most detailed Ordnance Survey mapping 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.

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.

The colour was applied by hand, initially by boys paid on a piece work basis, and later by women.

All our historic mapping data is sourced from the National Library of Scotland and they have scanned all their holdings of these magnificent OS 25 inch maps. However, their holdings are incomplete, and the principal exclusions are the earliest copies of sheets, published before 1911. What this means is that mapping data for your area may only be available in later maps circa 1920, these will not be coloured.

Therefore we suggest you choose the "Email Me Map Proofs Only" option, we will check what mapping sheets are available for the postcode location you provide and email you a sample of the map data for you to approve. There is no charge for this service.

Historic Ordnance Survey map wallpaper of Scotland

Redcliffe Imaging printed this historic map wall covering for me of the area where I was brought up. It turned out to be cheaper than I first thought. An error on my part in the initial ordering was quickly and easily rectified. Communication throughout was professional, friendly and guided me what was happening with my order. Absolutely delighted with the finished article, which we applied to the wall guided by the comprehensive instruction/advice provided with the order. Thanks guys. - Robert Bruce
