CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Highways Boards were created by the Highways Acts of 1835 and 1862 in order to improve the quality of roads in Britain. The 1835 Act permitted the unification of parishes into districts that were responsible for maintaining highways. The later legislation allowed Justices of the Peace to divide the county into Highways districts according to their own judgement. These districts were governed by boards made up of Justices of the Peace and way-wardens from constituent parishes. The Highways Boards were abolished in 1894, when their responsibilities transferred to the Urban and Rural District Councils.
