Ordnance Survey - Quarter Inch to the Mile Maps of England, Scotland and Wales
4th Edition (Coloured), 1934-39

Ordnance Survey, Quarter Inch to the Mile, 4th Edition (Coloured), 1935-37 graphic

These maps at quarter inch to the mile (1:253,440) were reduced from larger-scale mapping at the half-inch and one-inch to the mile scales. These maps were substantially revised and updated from the third edition maps, particularly with new road and railway information. Their larger sheet size, allowed all of England and Wales to be covered in 12 sheets, and all of Scotland to be covered in nine sheets. These maps were printed with 8 colour plates, allowing an attractive range of layer colours to be applied to show relief. The quarter-inch to the mile series provides an overview of significant landscape features, including larger settlements, railways, and roads, and were also of value for air navigation, with the location of aerodromes also shown. These maps are held at: Map.Area.C18(64A) for Scotland, and Map.Area.C17(66) for England and Wales.
