SK2275 : Parish boundary stone

taken 2 years ago, near to Stoney Middleton, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Parish boundary stone
Parish boundary stone
Situated on the ancient boundary line that defined the parishes of Eyam and Stoney Middleton, it is said that when Eyam was afflicted by bubonic plague in 1666 this stone played a useful role. Villagers from Stoney Middleton brought provisions here that Eyam villagers paid for with coins steeped in vinegar. That is what the holes on top of the stone were for - or so it has been suggested.
