Boundary stone at NGR SJ 987 552


Boundary stone. Dated 1855. Stone. The stone is inscribed 'LIA
1855 L.B.' and marks the outer limit of the administrative
area established by the Leek Improvement Act of 1855.
HISTORICAL NOTE: the act set up a commission with powers to
enact improvements in the town, and to establish markets, a
cemetery, to manage the water works and markets. It marks the
beginning of municipal government in Leek. For the purposes of
the act, the boundaries of the town were established as a
circle with its centre in the centre of the Market Place.
Wherever this circular line crossed rights of way and
watercourses, the boundary was marked by a stone post, several
of which still survive.
