Thanks to drm567, there's now two lots of maps uploaded in two days!

The one that's been uploaded is one of my favourites - it's Sheet 172 (Chatham and Maidstone) Revision A/* from 1961. It's unusual because it's one of the rare sheets where two were published in a single year, and the following A/*/ revision was published just a couple of months later.

The later sheet is available on the 1962 layer, so can you see why a second revision was rushed out? As a hint, it's something to do with a then brand-new road...

Can I mention that yesterday you mentioned some new maps being uploaded on the 1954 layer. Problem is, there is no 1954 layer!
My old posts are just downright embarrassing.

Ah, not that you can see.... :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Yeah, erm, it's there, it's just that we've had to revert to the old menus to solve some bugs with the new ones, so it (along with the 1952 and 1953 layers) is not actually visible at the moment. :oops:
