Ordnance Survey 6-inch first edition 1870 -1875 Cheshire 6 inch
Maps of Cheshire
This DVD contains images of the Ordnance Survey first edition 6 inch maps of Cheshire which were produced between 1870 and 1875. The scale is 1 to 10,560 or 6 inches to 1 mile. The maps cover the whole of the county including moorland and heath land not covered by the 25 inch maps.. The maps were scanned from those held by the Cheshire Record Office with their kind help and permission. The maps measure 1m x 0.7m and are scanned at 300 dpi. in grayscale.
The maps are in two forms on the DVD. The first version presents the maps in sheet form as they were produced. This version is accessed by Adobe Acrobat via a graphical index. In the second version the maps have been stripped of their borders and joined together to form a single composite map of Lancashire 33 ft by 24 ft. You can zoom in to the smallest detail or out to see the whole county. Printing is possible from both versions.
NB The second and third editions have been scanned and DVDs may be produced in the future if demand warrants it.
