Ordnance Survey one-inch Old Series map of England & Wales sheet 37

Powered by Zoomify

16. This is one of four Old Series sheets (the others are 13, 36 and 41) which are known to have been engraved around 1820-1, but which were rejected and wholly re-engraved before eventual publication in 1830-33. This is the only one of the four unpublished sheets which has been found so far. As compared with the published version, the text is rather more bold, and the hachuring is less refined. The published version also incorporates various topographic and placename revisions, and is probably planimetrically more reliable.
