Geological Survey of England and Wales 1:63,360 geological map series [Old Series]

The first 1:63,360 geological map series produced by the Survey in England and Wales. Sheetlines are based on the Ordnance Survey 'One-inch Old Series map of England and Wales' series sheetlines. Consists of sheets 1-110 with Sheet 1 starting North-east of London and then sheet numbers increasing west to Cornwall and then North to the Scottish Border. Early sheets were issues as 'full sheets' later sheets were issues as 'Quarter sheets’ (NW,NE,SW,SE). Sheets are issues at the scale of one inch to one mile, 1:63,360. Sheets published without Glacial Drift are known as Solid Geology maps, others published with the Drift are known as the Drift Maps. Most early maps were issues hand-coloured, later sheets were colour-printed. In the Northern Counties the Quarter sheets of Sheets 91 to 110 are the same as Sheets 1-73 New Series, the geological maps of this area carry two numbers referring to the Old and the New Series respectively. Up to 1854, the geological mapping was undertaken on one-inch base maps, the largest scale available at the time. As the survey advanced northwards it found the six northern counties had been mapped on the six-inch scale so the survey adopted this larger scale as the basis for field-work. Availability of six-inch base maps also heralded the start of systematic drift surveying.

Maps in this series are out of print. Copies can be purchased 'print on demand'. To purchase follow the link on a maps Full record page.
