Geological Survey of England and Wales 1:63,360/1:50,000 geological map series, New Series

The current 1:63,360/1:50,000 map series for England and Wales. Sheetlines are based on the Ordnance Survey One-inch New Series topographic maps. Sheets 1-360. Sheet 1 starting at the Scottish border and the numbering moving southwards to Cornwall and finally Scilly Isles. In the Northern Counties the early Quarter sheets Sheets 1-73 New Series were the same as Sheets 91 to 110 of the Old Series, These early geological maps carry two numbers referring to the Old and the New Series respectively. A small number of early sheets were hand-coloured and the New Series consists of mainly colour-printed sheets. Sheets were traditionally issues at 1:63,360 and in 1972 sheets started appearing at 1:50,000. From 1972-1999 sheets were variously newly published/reprinted at 1:63,360 or 1:50,000. 1:50,000 sheets are of two types: 1:63,360 maps photographically enlarged to 1:50,000 to form facsimile enlargements, or, new cartography at 1:50,000 - the latter bearing the additional series designation: 1:50 000 Series. A number of 'special sheets' are associated with this series e.g. Anglesey.

The 'Special sheets' can be found at the end of the listing.
