Bounds Thursday

Bounds Thursday is Ascension-day, which always occurs on a Thursday. This day was so called because the old parish custom of marking or beating the bounds was observed annually either upon this day or on one of the Rogation days. By this act the bounds of the various parishes remained matters of personal knowledge and individual repute.
