'Marking the Boundary' Project


This exciting new heritage project aims to link boundary markers with their former sites and to create a physical map of the former town boundaries of Leigh, Lancashire using 3D printing technology to reproduce scale models of them.

Monument Men volunteers have been given exclusive access to maps dating from the early 18th century to present day, which we have used to identify and catalogue markers, which we are then using photogrammetry 3D scanning to capture.
