Monument Number 1043643

Hob Uid: 1043643
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Lynton and Lynmouth
Grid Ref : SS7403043960
Summary : Stone gate pier reset in wall on the east side of the trackway to Hoaroak. Possibly originally a medieval marker stone, or waymarker which was situated north of the fieldwall, as seen on a map of 1890 and later reused as a gate post or even originally a prehistoric standing stone.
More information : SS 74033 43966: A large stone, now reset in the wall on the east side of the trackway to Hoaroak. It is 1.8 metres high, 0.6 metres wide at its base tapering to a point and 0.3 metres thick at best. Two holes containing iron gate hinge brackets are on its west face. A stone, presumably this one, is marked just to the north of the field wall on the 1890 Ordnance Survey map(a). Eardley-Wilmot(b) who saw the stone when it was laid by the wall suggests that it served as a marker for the track before the fields were laid out and it was subsequently used as a gatepost.

The stone is somewhat pointed and angular and is not a 'typical' rectangular slab gatepost (ie reminiscent of those at the stone working site (SS 74 SW138) 1.5 kilometres to the south east) although in slope size gateposts vary. It is possible that this stone was a waymarker, or even earlier a standing stone. Surveyed at 1:2500. (1 a, b)
