CARLISLE

NY3956SE WEAVERS BANK
671-1/6/308 (North side)
City boundary stone at NY 3993 5645

II

City boundary stone. 1830s or 1840s. Calciferous sandstone.
Square stone with flattened top set into the ground. Inscribed
on 2 faces C.C. (City of Carlisle) and on another face DIXON
(the then Mayor); the lettering is partly cut away by angle
flaking. The only surviving boundary stone of this period when
the city boundary was extended to the south bank of the River
Eden. As leave was sought by the city to mark the boundary on
Eden Bridge in 1836 (Carlisle Journal 2 July 1836) it is
possible that this stone was erected during the Mayoral office
of Peter Dixon in 1838; however, a number of members of the
Dixon family were Mayors up to 1853. The stone appears in this
position on the 1865 OS map of the city.
