It's the second edition of the 1964 Route Planning Map south sheet, best thought of as a "mid-year" update! The first two editions of the Ordnance Survey Route Planning Map had these second revisions for the southern sheet, and as expected it's smack in the middle of the 1964 and 1965 (first revision) sheets in terms of changes.

* And the OS fixed the awful "A1(M)" legends on the original revision.

What else can people find on there?

The map can be found under "OS Ten Mile", then "1964 Route Planning 2nd".
