Ordnance Survey
Ordnance Survey (OS) is a national mapping agency in the United Kingdom which covers the island of Great Britain. It is one of the world's largest producers of maps.

The agency's name indicates its original military purpose (see ordnance and surveying), which was to map Scotland in the wake of the Jacobite rising of 1745. There was also a more general and nationwide need in light of the potential threat of invasion during the Napoleonic Wars. Ordnance Survey mapping is usually classified as either "large-scale" (in other words, more detailed) or "small-scale". The Survey's large-scale mapping comprises 1:2,500 maps for urban areas and 1:10,000 more generally

Kirkbride, Cumbria
Kirkbride is a village and civil parish in Cumbria in the north west of England. The civil parish population at the 2011 census was 489. Significant remains of ancient history are close to Kirkbride including the Kirkbride Roman fort and Hadrian's Wall some miles to the north. Hadrian's Wall in this western reach and the Kirkbride fort were originally of turf and timber construction due to the paucity of available stone in this part of England around the Solway Plain; the Wall was later rebuilt in stone. The earliest recorded history of Kirkbride derives from the Roman occupation period; in 122 AD, the Romans constructed Hadrian's Wall, which incorporated the Vallum earthwork, and was initially made chiefly of turf and timber in the western reaches such as near Kirkbride. It is thought that Kirkbride Fort predates Hadrian's Wall and was built as part of the Stanegate frontier
