Proposed addition to the Local List: Parish Boundary Marker Stone, Watling Street, Bexleyheath

The Parish Boundary marker stone which is located approximately 50 metres west of the junction with Old Road, (on the southern side of Watling Street) Bexleyheath has been nominated as an addition to the Local List, which currently comprises approximately 400 entries. 

The Parish Boundary marker stone exhibits a pyramidal top and is inscribed with the letters BP (denoting Bexley Parish). The marker stone appears to be of 19th Century origin (possibly earlier) and appears on the 1864 and 1907 Ordnance Survey maps.  

The Council is seeking your opinion on whether the Parish Boundary marker stone should be added to the Local List. The Council is also seeking any information you may hold about the structure and its history. Historical records including photographs are particularly welcome.
