Description

This survey of a 19th Century boundary on the southeastern edge of Holdstone Down, together with an examination of documentary evidence, sets out the reason why only a few of the allotted plots on the down were enclosed on their southeastern edge by stone-faced banks. Three inscribed stones, which marked the plots prior to their enclosure, were located and recorded.
