Summary

Boundary stone, C19.

Reasons for Designation

This Boundary Stone, of C19 date, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

Architectural interest: * it was erected during a period when most intact parish boundary stones are listed; * it is a good example of an historic boundary stone that survives intact and in its original position; * it has a simple shaped-head design formed from a slab of local slate, with a legible cast-iron plate to one face.

Historic interest: * it is an important and tangible reminder of the jurisdiction of early C19 parochial councils.

Group value * It also benefits from a functional group value with four similar boundary stones in the vicinity, marking the same township boundary.

History

This boundary stone marks the township boundary between Mosedale and Berrier & Murrah, which traditionally ran along the centre of the River Caldew. The boundary stone is depicted in its present location on the first edition Ordnance Survey map surveyed in 1861 annotated ‘Stone’. A group of four similar boundary stones situated on both side of the river to the south of this example, are listed at Grade II (National Heritage List for England: 1145617; 1145618; 1312206 and 1319017).

Details
