SK5447 : The northern edge of Nottingham

The northern edge of Nottingham
The northern edge of Nottingham
This characteristic Nottingham boundary marker, on Hucknall Lane, dates from the expansion of the borough in 1877, incorporating Radford, Basford and Bulwell. There has been no subsequent northward expansion, so it still marks the edge of the city.
Nottingham boundary markers :: SK5641
The boundary of the City of Nottingham is marked with over 20 cast iron markers in a distinctive semicircular form with rounded top. The majority date from the expansion of the city in 1933, but there are a number of older ones, including some delineating parish boundaries between different Poor Law boards in the 19th century. The earliest is dated 1849.
The markers include a number erected by Carlton Urban District Council, generally as a twin to a Nottingham one, although in many cases the twin has disappeared.
Overall nearly 50 locations are shown on OS maps, but a number have disappeared and the existence of others is difficult to ascertain as they are located in private gardens, etc.
