The 1995 edition which cost £50 is kept handy at my desk.
Now Ancestry has made a version available as part of a subscription. You get the ability to search by country (England, Scotland or Wales), county, registration district and parish. The example is for Evenley, Northants and shows a map reference. Unfortunately the grids on the sides of the maps are missing. All maps have a grid range from A1 to M10, with the letters falling along the longest side.
For England and Wales I now tend to turn to FamilySearch England Jurisdiction 1851 which has more comprehensive information -- and will likely be available when Ancestry is not!
