II

Boundary stone. 1853. Ashlar. Triangular plan. Inscribed "SALFORD/ PRESTWICH" and on chamfered top "BOUNDARY STONE". Denotes the boundary (along the line of Singleton Brook) between Prestwich (in Bury) and Salford. Probably erected in 1853, the year when the 3 townships of Broughton, Pendleton and Salford were brought together to form the new County Borough of Salford. Forms a group with the boundary stones in Bury Old Road (qv) and Singleton Road (qv).


REASONS FOR DESIGNATION
The Boundary Stone at the Junction with Singleton Brook, dated 1853, is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* Date: It is a good example of a mid C19 boundary stone, which still survives in its original form.
* Historical: It marks a change in local government boundaries when the townships of Broughton, Pendleton and Salford were brought together and formed the new County Borough of Salford.
