Victorian North Bierley Police (West Riding Of Yorkshire) Ebonised Wood Tipstaff Truncheon With Hand Painted Decoration & V.R. Royal Cypher. Sn 17684 - 17684
Bierley is a former township in the West Riding of Yorkshire whose name now mainly refers to a neighbourhood in the Tong ward of the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. In 1872 Bierley was recorded as a township that included the village of Wibsey, the hamlets of Bierley Lane, Carr Lane, Hilltop, Odsal Moor, Woodhouse Hill and Folly Hall, and the districts of Low Moor. The population was about 9,500 persons in 1841 and 12,500 in 1861. The township was also known as North Bierley, to distinguish it from similarly named places. The earliest record of the Tipstaff (Warrant Stick) was in the 14th Century. The name derives from the early origins of Policing when Warranted Officers would apprehend a criminal with the help if necessary of a tipped staff. The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but also symbols of their authority. Modern Police Truncheons originated from these Tipstaffs. This is an excellent original Victorian era Tipstaff Truncheon. The body is made of ebonised wood tapered and shaped for grip. The staff measures 14 ½” length. It has painted decoration featuring a Crown and Royal Cypher ‘V.R’ above ‘1’ & ‘North Bierley’ (possibly No.1 district, officer or armoury number).

The London & North Western Railway was formed on 16 July 1846 by the amalgamation of the Grand Junction Railway, London and Birmingham Railway and the Manchester and Birmingham Railway.

The company initially had a network of approximately 350 miles (560 km), connecting London with Birmingham, Crewe, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester. In 1923, it became a constituent of the London, Midland and Scottish (LMS) railway, and, in 1948, the London Midland Region of British Railways: the LNWR is effectively an ancestor of today's West Coast Main Line. This is an excellent original wooden Police Presentation Truncheon to a Detective of The Crewe LNWR Police.
