The Blisland Boundary Stone Project
Aims &
The Blisland Boundary Stone Project.

Greenbarrow Boundary Stone - Blisland ManorThis community based project was launched in March 2005 to survey and record all the boundary stones on the fourteen areas of Common Land that make up Blisland Commons.

The project was funded by the Local Heritage Initiative, a national grant scheme to help local groups to investigate, explain and care for their landscape, landmarks, traditions and culture. The LHI is run by the Countryside Agency and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Nationwide Building Society

The majority of these boundary stones are post-medieval and are usually inscribed with letters or symbols denoting the name of each landowner or the manorial estate. Although all the areas of Common Land are part of the Blisland Commons, geographically they cover parts of four different parishes: Blisland, St Breward, Temple and Cardinham. These landscape features have never been fully recorded, or set in context with the land they bound, some have fallen over, while others have entirely disappeared
