(643) Explanatory remarks -
The scale of the Parish Plans is the 1-2500th of the actual length on the
ground, and is equal to 25*344 inches to a mile, or 3'157 chains to an inch,
which is very approximatel^ 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 1^ miles, and the width 1 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 (f) on the plans are to indicate that the spaces so braced are in¬
cluded 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 con¬
tains the same area as 16 sheets of the Parish Plans. There is therefore a double
reference number to each sheet, as VI. 9., the Eoman Numerals referring to the
County Plans, the Arabic Figures to the Parish Plans.
The dimensions of the sheets on the Six-inch scale being four miles by six miles
the area is twenty-four square miles, equal to 15,360 acres.
The following are the characters employed on the Ordnance Plans on the Scales
of 1-2500, and 6 inches to a mile :—
County Names
