Administrative Boundaries of Biddulph & District

For many centuries the ancient ecclesiastical parishes were the main administrative unit, but during the Victorian era a new set of civil administrative areas developed with statutory authority, still loosely based on the old parishes but amalgamated and recast to reflect particularly the growth of municipalities. Ongoing boundary adjustments were made by statutory orders, a process which continues to the present. This map attempts to record all the boundaries and changes affecting Biddulph.
