  • Under the Define Map Area tab, select 'Click Here' then click where you would like the centre of your historic mapping to be.  An address will appear, ensure this is correct, and amend if necessary.  

  • Two pink squares will also appear - the larger square indicates the coverage you get on an A3 1:10,000 sheet, the central, smaller square indicates the coverage you get on an A3 1:2500 sheet.

  • To view a preview of each map, open each map by clicking the small + symbol then clicking on the camera.  You can hover over the map to see a more zoomed in view.  A red outline will appear which indicates the area of the full original Ordnance Survey sheet.  Please note that the A3 sheet you download will cover the area indicated by the pink square where your green location marker is NOT the full red outlined sheet (if the sheet is 1:10,000 it will be the area shown by the larger pink square, and if the sheet is 1:2500 it will be the central pink square.
