    Default Boundary Markers

    I found this on the bbc website.
    A pic of a blue stone/plaque dated 1820. Apparently in Martindales car park in St Anne St.

    Any ideas what it is??

    I've checked the 1908 OS map, and Rose Place was the "Divn. of Parly. Boro. & Ward Bdy." (sic).
    Division (?) of Parliamentary Borough and Ward Boundary.

    Default Boundary Stones

    I assume this is the Grade II listed boundary stone? I can just make out a 'W' and a 'G' either side of the dividing line.

    I know there are a few different little threads going on about boundary stones, but I think we should collect them all in one!

    Thanks for starting this thread, MissInformed. As you can see, I have copied Marky's post of the boundary stone on Rose Lane by Mossley Hill Church to here. Marky said, "It's just a bit down the hill from the church (and on the same side). I just hope the letters don't stand for Water and Gas. I don't know its' age, but guess it's old." And I expressed the view that the "W" probably stands for "Wavertree" and the "G" for "Garston."

    I will also put the St. Anne's boundary marker here as well. -- The pic of which you helpfully posted earlier.

    Hi MissInformed

    Toxteth.net has a discussion of the boundaries of Toxteth Park including pictures of two boundary stones, for Wavertree and Toxteth Park, respectively, shown with a "W" and a "TP" -- which might confirm what I said above that the Rose Lane marker shows the boundary between Wavertree ("W") and Garston ("W"). Also shown on Toxteth.net are a recent railway marker close to those two stones, as well as another possible Toxteth boundary marker.

    On Mike Royden's history site in his discussion of the Oglet saltworks in Dungeon Lane, he mentions that "A ditch running alongside Dungeon Lane, which leads down to the shore from Hale Road, once formed part of the ancient boundary line between the townships of Speke and Hale" and that "A boundary stone bearing the Speke Hall Watt family's initials was situated on this line part way along the incline."

    In his discussion of Roby, Mike says, "The oldest standing structure is most likely what appear to be the remnants of either a village cross - or perhaps a boundary stone." A picture of the stone appears on his site.
