One box full, perhaps 2 cubic feet or so, of sets of OS 1 inch and 2½ inch map extracts as used in GCE O level and A level geography examinations during the 1950s-1970s. These were rescued from school geography departments many years ago, but a thinning out of possessions means that they need to be disposed of. There are perhaps 100 or more sets, some with only a few maps but others containing up to fifty copies. Their condition is variable, as is to be expected from sheets used by schoolchildren, but generally adequate to good.

I will be holding a stall at the Society’s AGM in Alnwick on May 11th. I have recently sorted my stock of OS military maps, mostly acquired 20-40 years ago and subsequently stored flat in a plan chest. The condition of these maps varies widely from unfolded, pristine to well used. I have too many Popular, War Revision and Second War Revision sheets to take them all to the map market but if you are coming to the AGM and are looking for specific sheets, please let me know and I will reserve them for you without obligation. All will be priced at £1 or £2 each and I can supply map tubes at no extra cost to transport them home.
I also have a stock of final sheets of the 7th Series, most of which are in pristine condition and stored flat, which will be priced at £3 each or less.
Finally I have a large number of spare folded sheets of all states and most ages, mostly from the 3rd edition large sheet series onwards but with a few earlier sheets – too many to bring all to the AGM, so if you are interested in specific sheets or series, please let me know and I can bring them along.
Maps may be posted to members not attending the AGM, subject of course to additional charges for postage at cost.
Please contact me by email at If you provide your phone number I can call you back, given the limited time available before the AGM.

I have a number of old OS Maps surplus to requirements, of various ages (mainly 1" / 1:50,0000). I am very much a map user, rather than collector, so most are well used, or very well used. However, I am reluctant to bin (recycle them) so I was wondering if it is likely whether any fellow members would be interested. Full list is here: William Heaps,
