Boundary stone, Woodhead Road
Boundary stone, Woodhead Road
This stone was puzzling at first. It is listed, Grade II, and is called a ward boundary stone, mid-19C. It might be on a ward boundary now, but wasn't in the 19C. The boundary between Honley and Holmfirth was Hagg Dike, at Thongsbridge to the south. A boundary stone on the main road, over this stream, is first shown on the 1904 revision of the 1:2500 map, soon after the two places became urban district councils. There was a change of boundary in 1912, when the southern part of Honley was transferred to Holmfirth. The new boundary intersected Woodhead Road at this point. The 1932 revision of the 1:2500 map shows a boundary stone here but not over Hagg Dike, so I think this was the late 19C or early 20C stone, and that it was moved here when the boundary changed.
