Some discrepancies may occasionally be noticed between the amount of arable, pasture and woodland in each parish, which has been kindly supplied by the Board of Agriculture, and the total area of each parish taken from the Ordnance Survey maps. The former statistics are given as near as they can be obtained, but occasionally where holdings are in two parishes the owner has inadvertently returned the whole area of his holding under the parish in which he resides.
