SO6610 : Great Western boundary marker

taken 2 years ago, near to Upper Soudley, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

Great Western boundary marker
Great Western boundary marker
An old GWR boundary marker in the grass, near Tump House at Soudley. This is some way from where the GWR's Forest of Dean branch ran, but is at the edge of the land once occupied by the tramway serving Soudley Iron Works, which had ceased production in 1877. I wonder if the GWR also owned the tramway route? Detail of a similar boundary post, up the line near Ruspidge, can be seen at SO6511 : Great Western boundary post detail.
