All the 'Old Series', ‘Revised New Series’ and 'Popular Series' maps have been carefully scanned, digitally re-projected and enlarged to match the present-day Ordnance Survey Landranger® series. Each map is directly comparable with the corresponding Ordnance Survey Landranger® and uses the same sheet number and grid references, so enabling the past and the present to be compared with ease and accuracy. All the maps of England & Wales in each series (123 in all) have now been published and can be ordered.

Four maps in one – the 3 Historical Series (1833, 1902 & 1921) and the present day 1:50,000 map combined on one sheet – comparing the past with the present has never been easier!

Each map, centred on Dawley, extends from Lilleshall in the N. to Broseley in the S., and from Leighton in the W. to Shifnal in the E. covering an area of 15km x 15km.

All four maps cover exactly the same area.  The three historical maps have been enlarged from their original inch-to-the-mile to match the 1:50,000 scale of the present-day map and the addition of the familiar National Grid on all four maps enables easy comparison across the four time periods. Historical notes, details of the original maps used, web-links for local history societies and other sources of information are also provided.
