    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!

    And any info/facts about them....most welcome..

    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.
