Boundary Post, Belfast
Boundary Post, Belfast
An old Belfast boundary post located on the Antrim Road, directly across the road from J3379 : Boundary Post, Belfast. This post would have had the same inscription but the plaque bearing this has been removed. Interestingly, this gives a glimpse behind and shows that there is another (possibly earlier) inscription which reads "Parliamentary Boundary of Borough of" - the rest has been removed. A boundary post is shown at this location on OS maps dating from 1901 - it may have been this one with the earlier inscription and a plate was simply added to it when the ward boundaries were changed in 1918.
