Plague Stone, Upton-by-Chester
Plague stones were set up in order that the people might barter for food. People from the afflicted districts came to the district plague stone and placed money on the bowl which contained disinfectants and then retired to a safe distance. Food, in exchange, was placed on the stone. The Upton stone formerly stood at the Upton cross-roads. The bowl was restored by Mr. J. Collins, The Blue Coat School, Chester, 1938. Placed in this position by the permission of the vicar Reverend T. O. C. East-by Upton parish council. Follow this address for more information, LinkExternal link
