Ten-foot plans
'The 1:500 scale was introduced in 1855, and by 1895 it covered most towns over about 4000 population at the time of survey' writes Richard Oliver.

Thus, maps at this scale are the most detailed produced by the Ordnance Survey, and are also some of the least known. All are invaluable to the local historian and should be consulted for any local history research.
