Ordnance Survey National Grid maps, 1940s-1960s - Sheet Lists

The most detailed Ordnance Survey maps after the Second World War. 1:1,250 scale maps for urban areas with more than 40,000 inhabitants, and 1:2,500 maps for other inhabited areas, including smaller settlements and cultivated rural land. The 1:10,560 series was eventually published for all areas, and by the late 1960s covered most of Scotland, apart from the central Highlands and the Northern and Western Isles. The 10,560 series was derived from larger-scale 1:1,250/1:2,500 mapping in urban and more populous areas, and was most detailed ‘basic’ scale for many more remote rural areas.
