(609) Explanatory remarks -
The Scale of the Parish Plans is the l-2500th of the actual length on the ground,
and is equal to 25-344 inches to a mile, which is very approximately equal to one
square inch to one acre, the square of 1-0018 inch being equal to one acre.
The length of each sheet is one and a-half miles, and the width one mile, the area
of each sheet is therefore 960 acres.
Each enclosure has a reference number to the area which is given in this Book.
The Braces [ /] on the plans are to indicate that the spaces so braced are included
under the same reference number.
The Altitudes in feet above the Mean Level of the Sea are written thus —31'4.
The Scale of the Plans of the County is 6 inches to a mile, and each sheet contains
the same area as 16 sheets of the Parish Plans. There is, therefore, a double reference
number to each sheet as VI. 9., the Roman Numerals referring to the County Plans,
the Arabic Figures to the Parish Plans.
The following are the characters employed on the Ordnance Plans on the Scales
of 1-2500 and 6 inches to a mile:—
