Notes

Topographic series of Great Britain showing county and administrative boundaries. Relief shown by contours and spot heights.

Later issues titled 'Pathfinder' or 'Pathfinder series'.

Each sheet has a distinctive number and title, e.g. Edinburgh NT27/37, later Edinburgh 407.

Each sheet generally covers 20 km x 10 km, with sheets aligned to the gridlines of the National Grid, with exceptions in coastal areas. Sheets initally numbered according to the (two) squares of the National Grid they covered, e.g. Edinburgh NT27/37. Later Pathfinder editions replaced this with a sequential numbering from 1 (Haroldswick, Shetland Islands) to 1372 (Lizard Point), with 1373 for St Kilda. The Scilly Islands were later covered by an Outdoor Leisure map.

Second series/ Pathfinder maps progressively replaced 1994-2003 by Explorer series.
