Where was that UK historic county border?

You can access a file which shows the historic county boundaries of England, Scotland and Wales to be superimposed on Google Earth at http://www.county-borders.co.uk/. The borders shown are certainly pre-1974 and even pre-1900 in some cases.
Another good option for examining English county, and other borders is the FamilySearch English Jurisdictions 1851 map at http://maps.familysearch.org/

Thanks for the map sources, still amazed at the treasures online, never thought to look in Family Search for maps.
