Hob Uid: 1044132
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Exmoor
Grid Ref : SS7473043010
Summary : Site of a boundary stone near the Hoar Oak tree documented in 1815 as marking the edge of the Forest of Exmoor. The area was visited in 1994 and no trace could be found.
More information : SS 7473 4301 A boundary stone near the Hoar Oak Tree.

McDermot(a) quotes from a perambulation of 16 Sep 1815 (to define the boundary of the Forest of Exmoor at the time of the Inclosure Act) which mentions a 'Boundary Stone on the left or North side of the tree called Hoar Oak'.

SS 74742 43016. A tree symbol, annotated 'Hoar Oak Tree', is shown between the stream and the boundary bank on the 1890 Ordnance Survey map(b) (surveyed in 1888) however no stone is shown or marked on this map in the vicinity.

No trace of this Boundary Stone could be found.
There are several stones in the natural rock gulley between the Hoar Oak and the boundary bank although none are identifiable as a definite Boundary Stone. The original may have been washed away by the stream when in spate. (1ab)
