Mysterious Objects: No 1 of an occasional series

posted in: Observations | 3

Can anyone help in identifying this object which has been lovingly placed on Aston University Campus. It’s not mapped yet: what do you tag this as?  Perhaps they just haven’t got round to placing a label or information board there. Any help gladly accepted

    I’m reasonably sure it’s a boundary marker that formerly marked the boundary between the parishes of Aston and Birmingham.

    Maybe it’s like the paint-spill an RAF man had neatly painted into a square to hide his accident. Years later he returned for a reunion to find his square slightly larger and neatly repainted. It had been looked after even though no one knew what it was.

      That is brilliant, having worked with the RAF (and Navy and Army) for 5 years I can recognise the mentality of repainting a square even though no one knew why!
