I think it is just where the sheet is generally not very hilly. In
relatively flat areas 10m contours would mean almost no contours!

Which got me wondering what the largest area is on a UK OS (25/50) map
with no contours printed.

This was done in The Angry Corrie, abeit they were looking for a blank
terrestrial grid square. It then made it onto the BBC website and
other places. I think the blankest square found on OS 1:50k had a
drainage ditch and a contour.
