Dez tells me that all map makers put deliberate mistakes into their maps to catch breaches of copyright.

The road along the dam at Hanningfield Reservoir, for example, is labelled "Middle Mead Close" on the map. It's really called Middlemead. There is a Middlemead Close, a small residential road in West Hanningfield village, built at the same time as the reservoir was constructed in the 1950s.

Thanks Wow.
