Hugh, where is this? Will ask HHS and get back to you. Most I have seen are shorter/wider but perhaps most is buried. Is it for sake somewhere? Council very poor at protecting parish boundary markers. Looks real to me
It's been rescued from a building job and given to me - more about our heritage heroes anon.
I'd be grateful for anything you can find out.
There are plenty to be seen on flickr https://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Hornsey%20Parish%20Boundary%201887
It would good to know how the numbering system worked - then we might be able to find out it's original location and finally liberate it. :-)
Hugh - I've asked the churchwardens at Hornsey Parish Church if they have any ideas.
There are two of these either side of Mount View Road, on the border with Islington.
Cheers chaps. They seem (unsurprisingly) to be all over the place. I'd never previously been aware of them.
