This map of the Historic Counties of England and Wales is a unique, original design that displays the ancient county boundaries of each nation with 21st century detail, digitally rendered in the style of a 19th century map print.
Also known as the traditional counties, these long-standing administrative divisions existed from the medieval period up until their reform in the late 19th century and eventual abolition (and replacement by modern counties and unitary authorities) at various stages of the 20th century. Today, despite their obsolescence in administrative terms, they continue to have a strong influence on regional cultures and identities, and are the focus of various campaigns for official recognition and even restoration.
The map features modern-day details such as towns, cities, built-up areas, roads and railway lines, and historic county towns are labelled with bold type. Prominent peaks are also labelled with their heights given in metres. The design is finished with an elegant, period-style border and title with scale bar.
