[From List of Manx Antiquities, 1930]



O.S. stands for the Ordnance Survey Maps of the Isle of Man. In the six-inch scale the Island occupies nineteen maps or sheets, and the number of such sheet or map is indicated in Roman numerals. Each one is considered as being divided into sixteen parts in four rows from left to right, and, numbered 1 at the N W. corner of the map to 16 at the SE. corner. These subdivisions correspond to the area covered by the larger scale 25 in. plans.

Thus O.S. X/13 refers to 6 in. Map X, and 25 in, Plan 13 that is, to the division 13 at the left-hand or s.w. corner of the 6 in. map.

N.B. When no details of the objects referred to appear on the 6 in. map, the reference O.S. is shown in brackets.
