It's almost half-a-century since what was in its day by far the biggest institution in British local government bit the dust.
The London County Council was established in 1889, and abolished in 1965 when the London boroughs were reorganised. (It was replaced by the still bigger Greater London Council, which bit the dust when Mrs Thatcher took against it in the 1980s).
Today on Hampstead Heath I came across a cruious remnant of the LCC - a boundary stone. This was where inner London (the LCC territory) met outer London. Still a boundary of sorts.
