just a question -

how easy would it be to provide a link to each map added, or is that too much of an ask
I'm not sure what you mean? It's entirely possible on Maps already to generate a link to a particular location on a particular layer.
I guess what Gav is asking for would be a link to each map when you post a list of new additions, for example

I could do, but it's huge amounts of my time when in reality it's hardly challenging to click on "Maps", then the right layer, then move around the map layer as appropriate?

If someone wants to help out and do that, then great, I'll be happy, but as currently everything that happens on Maps is just me, I can spend my available time doing that, or doing scanning, stitching, georeferencing, tiling, updating the annotations, uploading, posting updates here and on the Facebook page, etc etc etc...

If that's a volunteer of time to help out, then it will be gratefully accepted.

It's also worth noting that until we can put some additional development changes in, those permalinks are not permanent and may alter over time.

Due to a technical issue, the planned programming of just out of copyright Half Inch mapping has unfortunately been delayed.

Fortunately, this isn't the BBC, so instead of bringing you a repeat of an old episode of Last of the Summer Wine, we've just brought forward future planned programming in the shape of more One Inch Seventh Series mapping; plus a side order of a couple of really nice OSI One Inch maps.

They are:

1969
Sheet 126 (Norwich) Revision B

1968
OSI Sheet 173 (Killarney) Revision 3-68

1967
Sheet 170 (London SW) Revision B/*
OSI Sheet 187 (Cork) 1967 Revision

1966
Sheet 61 (Falkirk and Lanark) Revision B
Sheet 85 (Durham) Revision B/*
Sheet 189 (Land's End) Revision A/

1965
Sheet 82 (Keswick) Revision B

I really love a lot of these - the Cork sheet is just one of my favourite maps for no good reason other than it looks really good; the Durham sheet has a lovely A1(M) temporary terminus on it; the Keswick sheet includes the only Lake in the Lake District; and the Falkirk and Lanark sheet has the very first stretch of M8 on it. Lots and lots to see and do!

The Cork one is really nice for other reasons too - it shows some of the heavy tram routes that were once present in the city. It also shows the relative importance of the ports at Cobh and Ringaskiddy - the situation is now reversed with the development of Ringaskiddy and the national road going there, while Cobh is only served by the regional route.

Another good selection. The 1969 Norwich map has an early A47 bypass - Honingham under construction. Looked a nasty bend in the village.

Looking over at Teesside, A66 now reaches Stockton, but from Stockton to Middlesbrough remains A67, somewhat detached from the rest of the road west of Darlington; its current route to Yarm still has its old number of B1273. A19 still goes through Stockton, and some of the dualling through Billingham has been done, though you still have to go through Wolviston; however a short section through Sheraton seems to have been dualled. Seal Sands is still unreclaimed mud flats. Scotch Corner is still a flat roundabout at this stage. And Teesside Airport is marked by name but with no detail of buildings or runway alignment, perhaps a legacy of its RAF origins.
