Oxford boundary markers: Thornhill Park & Ride (1991)


Thornhill Park & Ride

 

[City coat of arms showing
ox crossing ford]

1991

Councillor
A.D. Pope
Lord Mayor

 

This stone is situated to the west of the entrance to the Thornhill Park & Ride, and is Oxford’s newest boundary stone.

It marks the extension of Oxford’s administrative boundary to the east in 1991, to take in those parts of Risinghurst that formerly came under Forest Hill & Shotover Parish Council.

Alan Pope was Lord Mayor of Oxford in 1991/2.

 

An inscription on the back shows that it was sponsored by the firm of Nielsen’s, which was then nearby at Nielsen House (in the grounds of Shotover Lodge), but which moved to the Oxford Business Park in 2018.
