Full Description

A finely-dressed sandstone boundary marker of 20th century date (post-dating the Ordnance Survey map of 1922). It is inscribed on two angled roadside faces, one side with 'COUNTY / OF / DERBY', the other 'CITY / OF / SHEFFIELD'. (1) The stone stands on the west side of the road near the junction of the A625 and the A6187. It measures 18 inches wide by 10 inches deep and has a visible height of 36 inches. (2) As noted above, the boundary stone is not shown on the 3rd edition Ordnance Survey map. However, it is shown of the following edition, and presumably was therefore erected in the 1920s or 1930s.
