Ordnance Survey - Quarter-Inch to the mile Index maps - 1890s-1960s
showing Civil Parishes and the County Series maps on the 6-inch and 25-inch scales

Quarter-Inch to the mile graphic

This set of maps at a scale of quarter-inch to the mile (1:253,440) were intended as county-based indexes to larger-scale County Series maps. The County Series sheet lines (relating to Six-Inch and 25 inch to the mile maps of Scotland published before the Second World War) are shown in grey, along with railways, major towns and coasts. Civil parish boundaries are shown with dotted lines. The areas not covered by 25 inch to the mile are shaded with diagonal lines. New editions of sheets were published showing changing administrative boundaries.

These sheet lines to County Series maps are also viewable in our Records viewer.
