Ordnance Survey - Quarter Inch to the Mile Maps of England, Scotland and Wales
4th Edition, (with National Grid), 1945-46. Outline Edition

decorative graphic illustrating this particular set of maps

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 Scotland to be covered in nine sheets. 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 the earliest quarter-inch to the mile maps to show National Grid coordinates and a 10 x 10 kilometre National Grid graticule. These maps are held at: Map.Area.C18(65A) for Scotland, and at Map.Area.C17(67A) for England and Wales.
