Beating the Waterbounds at Messack Point, Truro, Cornwall. 1st August 1911

Group, including the Mayor and town crier, at Messack Point which is opposite Channels Creek at Trelissick, Feock. 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 William Jordan
