Ordnance Survey Maps

After a brief history of the Ordnance Survey, the lecture concentrates on the uses of their large scale maps and plans as evidence for the local historian.

The scales concerned are the 6-inch and 25-inch maps and the 5-foot and 10-foot town plans.

Dr. Paul Hindle was a Senior Lecturer in Geography at Salford University, and is Hon. Secretary of Manchester Geographical Society.

He is the author of Maps for Historians (Philimore, 1998)
