Just Elspeth (Beating the Boundaries)

This time, Elspeth investigates a tradition dating back to the 14th century, that of “Beating the Bounds”.  It is however, still enacted today, although more as a ceremony than as a necessary enforcement of the division of land. In fact you might have taken part in it only the other week, at Colney Heath. Elspeth also includes a view of the rather special church there, St. Marks, and what the Colney Heath Newsletter is highlighting to add to the information and photographs given by the Herts Advertiser, back in June.
