Handmade to order
This old, full colour and wonderful map shows the railways and canals of the British Isles in 1872. It was engraved by G.H. Swanston and published by A. Fullarton & Co.
The map shows all the railways of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. And rather uniquely, it has inset maps showing the detailed railways of London, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, York, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
This map looks amazing at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) to 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 (45x60cm). It looks truly beautiful at larger sizes like 24x30 inches (60x76cm) and beyond. I can print this map at sizes up to 70 inches tall - 180cm. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
Please note that the unframed 24x30 inch map has white strips either side that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). All other maps look just like the listing images.
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x20 inch (40x50cm) version of this map.
Just about every town and city is visible in this antique map of the UK. Zoom in on some of the detailed images and see if you can spot your town!
This is one of the nicest maps of railways in the UK, almost at the peak of the British rail system.
This would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves railways or canals, or who is simply interested in the history of the British Isles.
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.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

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.
