Malvern Hills AONB

Work has begun on the Malvern Hills AONB boundary. Local help needed. Relation 233879 (XML, Potlatch2, iD, JOSM, history, analyze, manage, gpx)

The Hills were designated as an AONB in 1959, so the maps in the designation order showing the boundary will now be out of copyright (Crown Copyright expires 50 years after publication). I've therefore made an FOI request for the original designation order, which I believe will include maps that we should be able to use to complete the boundary.
