Ordnance Survey

. Sandy beach and the burgh of Thurso front the bay west of the river mouth. thumb right Three foot Theodolite used in the triangulation (File:3foottheodoliteramsden.jpg) The '''Principal Triangulation of Britain''' was a triangulation project carried out between 1783 and about 1853 at the instigation of the Director of the Ordnance Survey General William Roy (1726–1790). The building style of the now demolished Twenty Farm made it appear to have been built just before the railway station opened. The 1892 Ordnance Survey shows that very little other domestic building had been added to the hamlet after 25 years. The remarkable feature is the administrative nature of the new buildings. To the farm and railway station had been added the police station and school and that was virtually all. The map also makes it clear that by 1892, the name 'Twenty' had certainly been applied to the hamlet. The Nine Standards offer a better viewpoint than the Ordnance Survey trig point that marks the actual summit of the fell. Cross Fell and Great Dun Fell can be seen to the north west and Wild Boar Fell and the Howgills (Howgill Fells) feature in the south west. The High Street Range (High Street (Lake District)) of the eastern Lake District can be seen further to the west. Great Shunner Fell, crossed by the Pennine Way, and Rogan's Seat lie to the south east. Etymology Enfield Wash was first recorded in 1675 and on the Ordnance Survey map of 1822, from Old English ''(ga)wæsc'' 'a place that floods': there was probably a ford (Ford (crossing)) here where Ermine Street crosses Turkey Brook. Mills. A. D. ''Oxford Dictionary of London Place Names'' (2001) pp3,77 ISBN 0198609574 Etymology Enfield Highway is marked thus on the Ordnance Survey map of 1822, it is a settlement mainly from the eighteenth century named from the '' kings highe way leading to London'' 1610, the highway being the Roman road Ermine Street (now the A1010 (A1010 road) Hertford Road). Mills. A. D. ''Oxford Dictionary of London Place Names'' (2001) page 76 ISBN 0198609574 Retrieved 21 October 2008 The mapping authority for the United Kingdom, the Ordnance Survey, records the coastline of the main island, Great Britain, as 11,072.76 miles rounding to 11,073 miles (17,820 km).
