An unusual map of England & Wales, showing a highly detailed view of the geology (rock formations) of the two nations.
This map is available in a variety of sizes. The ideal size is 16x20 inches (40x50cm) or larger. Note that at smaller sizes (8x10 and 12x16 inches) you may struggle to read all of the place names without a magnifying glass!
This map was created by John Arrowsmith in 1834. It's perhaps not quite as striking as the more famous 1843 geology map of England & Wales, but it does have one rather interesting aspect: this 1834 map contains England and Wales' railways and roads!
There is an incredible level of detail on this map, with dozens of annotations, towns, and other landmarks. It is incredibly rare to find a detailed, full colour map from the 1830s. No matter which size you order, everything will be beautiful and sharp - but at smaller sizes, you may have to get very close to read the map (or get a magnifying glass).
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
