The 7th series layer has been updated with additional out of copyright
OS scans for the 1950s. The areas are around Liverpool, Cardiff,
Swindon, South London, Surrey, parts of Kent, and a few other places.
Some areas of rights of way data, which was not included in the modern
OS Opendata. Obviously, take care when tracing because things change,
but they might provide an additional tool or a basis for planning survey
Thanks to James Rutter for the scans. The recent additions were all from
my own folded sheets. Hopefully we can get more sheets available early
next year, as the copyright lapses on another batch of OS data. Steve
Chilton has a complete set of rolled sheets. I have a most sheets too.
