Be careful! A unit may cover just the town or village, but it may include a big surrounding area. For example, in England and Wales rural districts — units with RD or RSD suffixes — may even exclude the places they are named after. The "Units covering this place" tab lists units whose boundaries contained Peterborough.

Please note that these units are listed here because their boundaries covered the point location we hold for Peterborough. You can search for units that covered the particular location you are interested in by typing a postcode into our home page, or by using our Historic maps section, zooming in, selecting the Information option, and then clicking on your location. Units will also not be listed here if we hold no computerised boundaries for them, such as Registration sub-Districts and Sanitary Districts.
