The original historic counties of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on a map from Quadhurst Map, shown with borders and enclaves as they were before the Local Government Act 1888 and Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889.
The borders are those that existed before administrative counties were established, e.g. in Scotland Ross and Cromartyshire are shown as separate counties. Following these two Acts and further legislation, many county councils took the opportunity to "tidy up" their boundaries with neighbouring authorities and it was not uncommon for blocks of parishes to be exchanged. The Quadhurst map shows the boundaries as they were before these exchanges took place; the enclaves are numbered and cross-referenced to a key next to the map legend. Within Yorkshire and Lincolnshire names of their traditional historic parts are included. The map shows the counties in colour, each indicating its historic county town and includes present day road network.
The map comes with an A4 leaflet attached to its cover, explaining how the country was mapped and how the changes to its administrative structure came about.
PLEASE NOTE: This title is also available as a wall map.
