The gpx files are what I was looking for, and will help me. I've done any
updates manually by comparing the boundary line data up to now.

Dave, not sure exactly what you are looking for. If you are looking for a
display, then OSM Inspector (Multipolygon view) might help, as might
If you are looking for importable/traceable data, there are ready-to-go
GPX files available at
http://csmale.dev.openstreetmap.org/os_boundaryline/ which I made and am
using. You can open these as a "vector file" in Potlatch and they display
a nice thin blue line which can easily be converted to a way with
alt-click. The thin blue line is then *replaced* with the OSM way so I
often open the GPX a second time in the same session, to visualise the
border "in progress". I am slowly but surely working my way across Kent,
taking around 10 minutes for a typical civil parish.
