A geography file containing the Anglo-Scottish (England-Scotland) and Anglo-Welsh (England-Wales) land borders. These are the two "home nation" land borders that lie within Great Britain.

They are used in CDRC Maps to highlight the borders when showing data maps. Some CDRC maps may show metrics which are measured slightly differently in different nations and separately indexed, e.g. the Index of Multiple Deprivation, while others may show (for example) Welsh speakers in England, but not in Wales. The addition of these land borders acts as a useful indicator of where the data transition happens.
