taken 10 years ago, near to Milton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Carved stonework, King George's Field
Carved stonework, King George's Field
As shown in NS4274 : Milton Brae, there are some brick pillars at an entrance to NS4274 : King George's Field, Milton. The present picture shows the stonework on the one on the right, which bears the text "KING GEORGE'S FIELD".

For the corresponding detail on the left pillar, see NS4274 : Carved stonework, King George's Field.

For reasons explained in the end-note, the stones on both pillars have twins in many other King George's Fields. See, for example, NS3473 : Lion Plaque in Port Glasgow, a perfect match for the stone shown in the present photograph.
King George's Fields

As a memorial to King George V after his death in 1936, a foundation was established to give capital grants to towns and villages for the provision of playing fields: "any open space used for the purpose of outdoor games, sports and pastimes." All sites were to be called 'King George’s Field' and distinguished by heraldic panels that were usually displayed at a specially designed entrance. 471 schemes in the UK received grants from the Foundation. In 1965 the responsibility for establishing and preserving King George's Fields passed to the National Playing Fields Association. LinkExternal link
