    I shouldn’t think so, I don’t think it will be accurate enough. For a more accurate and legal definition of your boundary you should consult your Title or Lease Deeds, or you can try contacting your local Planning Office which may hold detailed boundary maps.
    Many thanks"

    "The Ordnance Survey Act 1841 does not grant Ordnance Survey the power to ascertain or alter property boundaries. The Ordnance Survey map is thus a map of the physical features encountered on the land by Ordnance Survey's surveyors. It is a map made without any enquiry as to the positions of property boundaries. It cannot, therefore, be a definitive map of property boundaries. Land Registry is careful to point out that its title plans, based as they are on Ordnance Survey maps, show the general positions of the boundaries of registered land.

    "The best way to find out would be to go to the
    land registry. It will state everything you need to know about your boundaries and your property.
    Hope that helps."
