There are four centurial stones noted by Authority 4 from Oldwall (Nos 2016-9). Number 2016 is that published by the Ordnance Survey (1) at Oldwall, which was removed to Cumrenton Farm, and which is described by Authority 2. It is still at Cumrenton Farm (in 1990) built into the wall above the south doorway at the house together with two uninscribed Roman stones which have been worked with diamond broaching. Nos 2017-9 are lost. The "further building stone" from Oldwall, noted by authority 5 may be a duplication of one of those noted by authority 4, in any event, no further information could be found.
