What a useful PDF:
To paraphrase for the lazy - parcels of land either side of a fence etc. that belong together as part of the same numbered plot.

Long 'S's on old maps.

I have a couple of old maps.  They are covered with long S shapes (look a bit like a lower case italic 'f' ) on a lot of the boundries etc.

Can any tell me what they represent.  Also, there are one or two capital 'W's which I can't identify.

Cheers
