The Werneth Bredbury Boundary Stone


In the wall outside what is now the Joshua Bradley a stone marks the boundary between the ancient townships of Werneth and Bredbury.

Now it is the boundary between the Metropolitian Boroughs of Tameside and Stockport.

You can see the wall in context from across the road on Hyde DP Xtra and a 1984 closeup by Janet Howie on Old Hyde.

I must have walked and drove past this stone hundreds of times Gerald.. and I have never seen this one... ha! I must have been to busy looking at either Pole Bank, or the farm fields across from this stone work.

That's quite new to me, never seen such a boundary mark as a wall!
God bless you!
