Four boundary stones are shown on the second edition Ordnance Survey map to the east of the coastguard station. Nothing is shown on the 1886 first edition map. They are still shown on the 1954/5 map although the two eastern stones are marked only as stone. Photos of visible stones.

Ordnance Survey, 2012, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV348725.

Only two stones are marked on modern mapping, one adjacent to the boundary wall of the coastguard station, now Ivy Cove Cottages (shown but not marked on the 1904-1906 map) and the 2nd one to the west from Lannacombe.
