The first Ordnance Survey one-inch map was published in 1801. Starting in the south of England, sheets for the whole of England and Wales were available by the early 1870s. These early maps are now known as the Old Series.

Maps were revised to show developments such as railways. The first three images above show Newtown without a railway, with one, and later, with the Kerry branch built.

We have a good selection of these maps folded in covers and as flat sheets, in good condition.

Inexpensive reprints have been produced by David and Charles.

Full details of this series, and over 1,000 other map series, including all the variant editions, and any related district maps can be found in Ordnance Survey small-scale maps : indexes 1801-1998 by Roger Hellyer. Far more than just index diagrams.
