If you check the source tag he attempted to put the source as this:

Some believe this cannot be used in OSM as it's been overlaid on OS 
background map. I'm not convinced, but the point is moot as it is freely 
available in isolation & in various electronic formats as stated in 
previous posts.

However they're not that accurate & should really only be used as a 
guide for on the ground surveying & confirmation of their designation.

I couldn't see a changeset comment. Have you contacted him?
