On the 23rd November 2020 a Golden Acorn was carried around the the boundary of the Royal and Ancient Toxteth Park. To comply with Covid regulations, the acorn was transported by spoon and carefully transferred from one carrier to another. Each carrier provided their own, special spoon. The circumnavigation of the ancient boundary was completed in a relay of 9 stages. It took 4 hours to traverse a distance of approximately 9.5 miles. Only two people – The Standard Bearer (Simon) and The Boundary Beater (Mandie) – completed the entire route on this day. Perhaps they are the first people to ever walk this ancient boundary?
