Full Description

A boundary stone is shown on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps. [1,2] The stone is also shown on the 1975 1:10,000 maps. [3] The stone probably marked the line of a trackway which crosses the allotment here. [4] There is now a stone hedgebank crossing the moor and no sign could be seen of the boundary stone on the eastern side of this. It is likely to have been removed or incorporated in the bank. [5] The stone is marked on the 2021 MasterMap data. [6]
