943/0/10057 Boundary marker at SO7829546672
Boundary post, dated 1865. Cast iron with rounded top. Relief lettering reads CLERKENWELL/ 1865./ E.J. THOMPSON/ W. GILLINGWATER/ CHURCH/ WARDENS.
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 has recently been re-erected in the position shown on the third edition Ordnance Survey map after being discovered in a nearby culvert. It has group value with the other boundary markers in Malvern.
One of a number of C19 and early C20 cast iron boundary posts, many of which are listed, erected to delineate the Clerkenwell Estate, a parcel of land bequeathed to the poor of the parish of Clerkenwell, London, in the C17 by Sir George Strode. The post remains intact and is now in its original position. It is of special interest on account of its strong historical interest and good group value.
