Early railway companies often used boundary markers to show the edge of railway property. GWRGreat Western Railway boundary markers took the form of round metal plaques, normally with the words GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY COS around the edge and the word BOUNDARY in the centre; the date was also sometimes shown. These would usually be mounted on a short length of old broad-gauge track set into the ground.[1]

A number of original GWRGreat Western Railway boundary markers on the Severn Valley Branch can still be seen in situ at or near their original locations. Two adjacent to Victoria Bridge are included in the Wyre Forest District Council Local Heritage List.
