Yolande Hodson
Coloured Roads on Ordnance Survey First Edition 1 : 2500 Plans and One-Inch Maps 1897-1935, and the Rights Of Way Disclaimer

The winning article appeared in volume 42 issue 2 and is titled Coloured Roads on Ordnance Survey First Edition 1 : 2500 Plans and One-Inch Maps 1897-1935, and the Rights Of Way Disclaimer.

abstract: In 1892 a government committee of inquiry into the Ordnance Survey suggested that the Survey should make a distinction between public and private second class roads at the one-inch scale. This study is confined to England and Wales and looks at the nineteenth-century practice of colouring roads on the large-scale plans, and compares the representation of coloured rural roads on early Ordnance Survey one-inch maps with near contemporary highway records of the county of Huntingdonshire, sixteen rural district councils in six counties and an estate in Suffolk. The results show that all but four of the coloured roads on the one-inch maps in these areas are recorded as publicly maintainable highways.
