Landmark Historic Ordnance Survey National Grid 1:10,560 Maps

In October 1840 the Ordnance Survey decided to adopt the six-inch mapping scale (1:10,560) previously used in Ireland, and in September 1841 work began to survey Lancashire. In July 1854 rural 1:2,500 scale maps were commissioned and in 1880 this was accelerated to cover all areas of the country. England, Wales and Scotland were surveyed in the following years, and each county was subsequently revised three to five times. These sheets have become known as County Series, named as such because individual counties were surveyed separately from their neighbours, often on different origins.

In 1944-5 the mapping was transferred to the National Grid. Counties were now no longer surveyed on different origins: instead the whole country was mapped as a whole and a new map naming convention was used. The standard scales became 1:2,500, or 1:1,250, or 1:10,000 in moorland areas. OS now has one of the largest collections of this historical mapping in the UK, until recently held on paper.

The 1:2,500 County Series maps, also known as 25 inch, measure 1.5 miles x 1.0 miles or 3.84 sq km. 1:10,560 scale measure 6 miles x 4 miles or 61.44 sq km for a full sheet and 3 miles x 2 miles or 15.36 km for a quarter sheet. The 1:2,500 scale National Grid maps measure 1 km x 1 km and 1:10,000 scale National Grid maps measure 5 km x 5 km or 25 sq km.

A joint venture between Ordnance Survey and Landmark Information Group assumed the task of creating copies in digital form, both in its original (raw) format, and in processed format for use for example in a Geographical Information System (GIS).

This National Grid 1:10,560 map product is delivered through the Historic Digimap service at EDINA. The Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) provides funding for this service to deliver these historic maps of Great Britain to UK Higher and Further Education.

The maps show contours, latitude and longitude, parish boundaries, railways, roads, waterways and woods. These maps are offered as black and white raster data in a range of formats.
