Just have a look at this version of the Ercall map by Dave Gittus in 1974 to see how maps have changed over the years, just note the angle of the grid lines.  1974 Map

I mapped The Ercall in 1974 whilst a member of HOC ( pre formation of Wrekin O) It was chiefly for West Midlands Schools championships. We had over 200 competitors. At the time I claimed it was the most detailed O map in the Midlands. Base map was a very out of date OS 6" to mile map with 25 ft contours. Over the years the depiction of the complex area NE part of map has gradually been improved. My map was drawn in pen & ink, later editions were scribed & now we have computer drawn maps ( big improvement) Hope this is of interest.
Regards Dave.
