Full Description:

Landwards are those areas of an administrative unit not included within a burgh. Thus a county landward is the area of land within a county that does not have burgh status. As well as county landwards, census reports also report by what can be termed as 'parish landwards', areas within those parishes containing burghs that are outside the burgh. The term landward is clearly not strictly a real status of a burgh but is the most appropriate place for it within the gazetteer structure.
