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, primarily dating from the third national revision of 1912-1923. With some minor variations, each sheet covers 72 x 108 miles, with all of England and Wales covered in 12 sheets, and all of Scotland covered in ten sheets. This outline or uncoloured series had all topography and text printed in black, with water in blue. The quarter-inch to the mile series provides an overview of significant landscape features, including larger settlements, railways, and roads. These maps are held at Map.Area.C18(63) for Scotland, and Map.Area.C17(64A) for England and Wales .
