Does anyone know what black dots mean on an OS Explorer map?

There are a lot of them on the map of Kinder Scout in the Peak District (UK).

I know the black dashed line is a footpath, I am asking about the round black dots (there are a line of them going from Kinder Low to Madwoman Stones).

In the image below, they go from Kinder Low (633m) to the top right edge of the map:

According to the Ordnance Survey legend, those are

BOUNDARIES

Civil Parish (CP); England or Community (C); Wales

See page 6 of the legend under boundaries. There are no other small black dots on the legend.

  • Thanks Charlie, I checked the Legend but obviously not the relevant section. – MJH Sep 28 '18 at 7:04
