J3665 : Old boundary post, Carryduff

taken 7 years ago, near to Pipers Cross Road, Northern Ireland

Old boundary post, Carryduff
Old boundary post, Carryduff
An old boundary post on the Saintfield side of Carryduff roundabout J3665 : "Roundabout" sign, Carryduff. Now worn and rusty, but what seems to be part of the words “Lisburn” and “District” appear at the bottom. I interpret this as a reference to the old (Co Down) Lisburn Rural District Council (RDC) which became Hillsborough Rural District Council J2762 : "HRDC" access cover, Lisburn (1) after partition.
To the best of my knowledge RDC’s did not cross county boundaries. Newry, for example, had two – Newry No1 RDC for Co Down and Newry No2 RDC for Co Armagh. J2765 : Boundary post, Hilden (2) shows a Lisburn town boundary post. Hillsborough RDC administered a wide area including Hillsborough, Carryduff, Saintfield and Dromara.
