Which OS Map Do I Need?

The Charles Close Society (CCS) is dedicated to the study of Ordnance Survey maps and a great deal of useful information is available on their website.

One of their most useful resources is their “sheetfinder” by which you can find OS maps that cover the area you need. Just type in the town, village or location name you want a map for and it will return a list of maps of various scales and ages. Furthermore, many of the maps listed have a link to an online example at the National Library of Scotland. The NLS also has a more extensive map finder but it is quite complex to use and unless you know what sort of map you want, or want a non-OS map I recommend the CCS sheetfinder.
