Plaque: Boundary stone - Deptford
Erection date: 1988
This stone marks the boundary between St Mary's parish, Rotherhithe and St Paul's parish, Deptford. Until 1899 this was also the Kent-Surrey boundary. This stone was on a bridge over the Earl Creek nearby, but was relocated here in 1988.
Site: Boundary stone - Deptford (1 memorial)
SE8, Deptford Wharf
The wall to which the plaque is affixed is free-standing and not much longer than you can see in the photo.
Just south of this point is a road running east-west, Plough Lane. Follow it to the Thames and there, on the foreshore, you can see the culverted outlet of Earl's Creek, named after Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester (1100 – 1147).
