Description

Originally early 19th century, replacement (original set in pavement). Small rectangular granite March Stone, at corner of Nellfield Place and Great Western Road. Tooled chamfered angle reading "4 ABD".

Statement of Interest

March stones mark the inner and outer marches (boundaries) of Aberdeen, defined by marked stones possibly dating from 1698. The original stones were replaced by the present stones, numbered 1-48 (including this stone), in about 1790, the next group were replaced in the early 19th century. The outer marches are thought to be later than the inner marches.
