SK5378 : The Shire Oak

taken 13 years ago, near to Netherthorpe, Rotherham, Great Britain

The Shire Oak
The Shire Oak
This Oak tree marks the point where the three counties of Yorkshire (now South Yorkshire), Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire used to meet prior to one of the many boundary changes which pushed the current point almost half a mile further north. The current point has no official marker but a cowboy builder with a warped sense of civic pride has dumped a large block of building rubble which marks the spot. Thanks by the way to the fly-tippers that dumped the record player further along this lane; my children have now seen their first ever record player. They were fascinated!
