I would like to make a shapefile of Great Britain's counties.

I have downloaded the boundary-line data from ordnance survey:

The unzipped file appears to contain two file types: .lyr and .qml.

How do I convert one of these into the shp format, or where can I get hold of the shp equivalents?


You want https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/business-and-government/products/boundary-line.html for the actual data. Hang on to those files if you want the style the shapefiles.
