Ordnance Survey: Boundaries Branch: Boundary Remark Books

This series consists of small books containing hand-drawn strip maps prepared by the Ordnance Survey to record original information on public boundaries under the provisions of the Ordnance Survey Act 1841. The books relate to English, Welsh and Scottish boundaries. The maps show boundary and related ground features and carry the signatures or marks of the meresmen for the parishes on each side of the boundary.

Catalogue entries for this series have been enhanced as part of a re-cataloguing project undertaken between August 2011 and August 2012.
