@CowpNewtMuseum Unfortunately not, they only cover the most populous places (Aylesbury, Buckingham, Wycombe, Marlow, Slough) so Olney is excluded. It might be on the smaller scale 25" OS though, you could look on the National Library of Scotland's OS resource to check (https://t.co/0lPnCneIdN).

OS maps are great, but the c.1880 First Edition is particularly special. For some parts of the county we have extra large scale ones giving additional information about public buildings. Here's Buckingham Workhouse, showing the different exercise yards. The site is now housing. https://t.co/2wlunTcb2h

Just acquired, several photos of the Aylesbury #Railway Disaster, 1904. A newspaper train left the tracks just outside Aylesbury Station and hit the platform about 3.40am. The accident cost four people their lives and wrought the widespread destruction shown in this image. https://t.co/zEV1mEDWOr

@RealAleEagle It's a steep price certainly, but worth paying to avoid being constable. The pleasures of being summoned in the middle of a winter's night to chase wrongdoers without pay must pall pretty quickly.

@RealAleEagle No, it was given to an individual and could be used once. If it wasn't used it could be sold on. More on them from Surrey History Centre here https://t.co/wwVm6Mhljm

A 1757 'Tyburn ticket' - exemption from parish office for Robert Pearson of Newport Pagnell as a reward for apprehending Richard Hutton in stealing 'one black Mare of the price of ten pounds'. The tickets were valuable; this one was sold on for £6 by Pearson's daughter in 1805. https://t.co/v9NNu5izVG

#OTD 1944, #DDay. The 1st Bucks Battalion landed at Sword Beach with the 6th Beach Group. This is the map used by Captain Neville Lawton-Smith, showing the beach and area north of Caen as well as towns with code names including 'Ganges', 'Vienna' and 'Oslo' https://t.co/80qq4QpEVS

#OTD in 1918, the Royal Bucks Hussars were leaving Africa for France aboard the Leasowe Castle when it was torpedoed and sank. Remarkably only two Hussars were lost, the rest had 12 hours in these lifeboats before they were rescued. #WW1 https://t.co/z7bZwe10P4

@tonysargeant Annoyingly, the album doesn't say.

As England's Test summer has got off to a difficult start they can at least be grateful that the pitch at Lord's is better than this one, faced by #Wendover cartoonist Frank Basil Purssell batting for the Air Raid Precautions team in 1940. https://t.co/FXPCcYp02t

@simon_n_dixon @OU_Williams @livuniLUCAS @essexarchive @BedsArchives @wqecollege Thanks Simon, we knew about the unhappy circumstances of his dismissal but only some of the rest. His wife Florence ran the service as archives clerk while Dare (always Paul in BCC minutes etc not Marcus) was in the army when this blog states their marriage had/was failing.
