Update re Cassini Historical Ordnance Survey Maps

Important Announcement – Cassini Historical Ordnance Survey Maps – my stocks of the original printed maps priced at £9.99/£8.99 are now running low, and in some cases have sold out completely. I am still attending Family History Fairs while the majority of these maps are available at my prices but next year 2021 is likely to be my last year. I am happy to supply by post at £9.99 each (post free). The Official Cassini Distribution has now been licensed to The Francis Frith Collection but they are charging £14.99 plus P&P.
