Beating of the Bounds Liskeard

May 14, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

The ceremony was originally carried out to establish that all was in order and that the Boundary Stones had not been moved. In the Royal Charter of 1587 by Queen Elizabeth I, the bounds of the Borough, which continued to the present century were fixed.  This enclosed an area of 2704 acres and is nearly square, the distance around is approximately 10 miles (a very hard 10 miles). There are a number of granite stones, marked B (Borough) and P (Parish).

The walk starts at 10.30 on Sunday 14th May from the Boundary Stone on Morrisons roundabout. Walkers can join for all or park of the walk.

Participants walk at their own risk. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs on leads are welcome. If you take photographs of other people’s property on the walk please respect their privacy and keep them for your personal use – don’t put them on Facebook or into the public domain. Please wear sun cream, suitable clothing and stout shoes as some of the paths can be muddy, especially where crossing the stream.

You can find full details on Liskeard Town Council’s website.
