Beating the Waterbounds, Truro, Cornwall. Early 1900s

Beating the Waterbounds, on the river boundary. The ceremony also includes the re-cutting of the letters T B on the boundary stones at Tarra Point and Messack Point by the Mayor, so as to maintain their legibility. Beating the Bounds is an old tradition whereby officials of the parish share their knowledge of the boundaries of their territory. Sometimes prayers would be offered for the protection of the fields and land, and to bless the land to ensure fertility. Photographer: Unknown
