Former district and parish maps
To view maps of the district and parish boundaries please select the link on this page called '2001 Census - District and Parish Maps'. For the 2001 Census some parishes were amalgamated to ensure confidentiality, this will be reflected on the maps. There was no parish profile for Shrewsbury at the time of the 2001 Census because it was a non parished area. Shrewsbury became a parished area on 1st April 2009.
Boundaries can also be viewed with a map background through the link called 'Map information'.
Please note that many of the facts and figures available on these pages relate to the administrative area covered by Shropshire Council and therefore exclude Telford and Wrekin. For information on Telford and Wrekin please select the link on this page.
