New Historical Mapping Layers Released on Ancestral Atlas

The historical map layer function has been upgraded to show two epochs for England and Wales:
  1. Maps from the original Ordnance Survey One Inch Scale First Edition (Circa 1805-1869) and
  2. Maps from the Ordnance Survey One Inch Scale New Popular Edition (Circa 1945-1948).
Now you are able to compare and contrast the physical changes to a location through time.

Historical mapping layers are accessible to all subscribers without restriction.
