JUNCTION WITH SINGLETON BROOK (THAT PA

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).
Part of the boundary stone lies within Salford district.
