GV II
Boundary post, 1909. Cast iron with rounded top. Relief lettering reads CLERKENWELL/ CHARITY/ TRUSTEES./ 1909./ ALDERMAN/ E.J. PERRY,/ CHAIRMAN./ THOS.W.WOOD./ RECTOR. The lower part of the post is currently obscured by undergrowth.

HISTORY: One of a group of boundary posts which were erected to mark the boundary of the Clerkenwell estate given in the mid-C17 as a gift by Sir George Strode to the poor of the parish of Clerkenwell in London. Originally there were twenty-five such markers which can be seen on early Ordnance Survey maps. The estate was gradually sold off during the C20.

SUMMARY OF IMPORTANCE: One of a group of C19 and early C20 cast iron boundary posts erected to delineate the Clerkenwell Estate. The post remains intact, in its original position, and has group value with the other markers.

Reasons for Listing

The post remains intact and in its original position. It is of special interest on account of its strong historical interest and good group value.
