Viney Hill Parish boundary stone No.1 at Mallards Pike Lake
Viney Hill Parish boundary stone No.1 at Mallards Pike Lake
This boundary stone stands at the entrance to Mallards Pike Lake forest park in the Forest of Dean. The inscription is: 'V.H.A.S.D. No.1 1866', which refers to the creation of 'Viney Hill All Saints (Ecclesiastical) District' in 1866. The House of Commons papers from 1866 make reference to three boundary stones, but the other two are, as yet, not found. There is also an ordnance Survey bench mark at the bottom right hand corner of the stone: SO6308 : Bench mark on Viney Hill Parish boundary stone #1, Forest of Dean For a wider view of the entrance see: SO6308 : Entrance to Mallards Pike Lake forest park, Forest of Dean
