About the maps
In 1893 a thorough revision of Ordnance Survey mapping was undertaken which, by the turn of the century, resulted in the publication of 346 sheets of what became known as the Revised New Series. Improvements in reproduction and printing techniques helped these to be even clearer and more accurate than their predecessors. By the late 1890s the military was pressing for a one-inch map in colour. The Ordnance Survey concluded that sales of the new maps to civilians would help subsidise the costs, a consideration which helped drive forward production of the first colour one-inch map published in 1897. Publication of all the maps of Great Britain was completed shortly before the outbreak of WWI.

The Revised New Series captures Britain at the height of its imperial prosperity. All but the very largest cities still had clearly defined boundaries, but with little of the urban sprawl that has since overtaken so much of the landscape. The construction of over 16,000 miles of railway track (of which about half survives today) had made its mark on the physical landscape, both by its very presence and through the social mobility that it helped encourage. Alongside and, increasingly, beneath these new developments, the maps still clearly show many of Britain’s more ancient features and settlements, but these are now dominated by the new Victorian urban society which was to last until the outbreak of the First World War.
