Beating the Bounds, Messack Point, Truro, Cornwall. 14th September 1917

Mr Walter Beard being arrested at Messack Point. 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: Arthur Willliam Jordan
