Default OS map 5m contours

Quite possibly. My Gower map has 5m contours, and that's a very popular
area. Not only is it an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there's also a
lot of National Trust land and Sites of Special Scientific Interest there.
Perhaps that's why it's been mapped in more detail?
