From the cover: “FROM THE SHETLAND ISLES in the furthest north-easterly reaches of Britain, to the Stilly Isles in the south-west, the Ordnance Survey has mapped every mile of the nation. Before it, Britain was represented by a mosaic of county and military surveys of variable accuracy, content and scale. But now each region possesses its own highly detailed map, whose pink and orange covers and beautiful contours are familiar to anyone who has rambled through the British countryside.
