Oxford boundary markers: Barracks Lane West (1892)

Boundary stone in Barracks Lane


Inscription illegible


This stone is in Barracks Lane beside the Boundary Brook, to the south-east of the Oxford Spires Academy (formerly Southfield School)

It marks the new boundary of Oxford after 1889, and probably dates from 1892
(see the two Headington boundary stones on the line of the brook)

There is also a benchmark on this stone


Frederick Ansell was Mayor in 1891/2,
and there was a special beating of the bounds that year
