Great Britain on the map in the 1950s
An additional 2,000 maps are now available on our website, which form our most detailed map series online to cover all of Great Britain.
The Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 series (1937-1961) was the forerunner of the modern Explorer and Outdoor Leisure series. It shows features such as field boundaries, footpaths, and types of woodland in the countryside, and it is also useful for showing railways, roads, as well as types of buildings in towns.
The series is available as individual sheets and georeferenced as a mosaic allowing comparison with modern map and satellite images.
The National Library of Scotland is a registered Scottish Charity. Scottish Charity No. SC011086.
