The wall follows the Ashburton/Buckland parish boundary from SX73687377 to the road at SX73347264. It cuts across reaves and cairns, the stones from the latter probably used for its building. The wall was the subject of litigation in 1771, when the building of it isolated Commoners from their water supply at Stidwell (West Devon Record Office cited by Belsey. Reference: 74/698).
