30/3/1984 Some largish rocks on a boulder situated on the common just to the north-east of the entrance to the lane to Bowden Farm. Other stone clearance piles to the north. There is a small area of ridge and furrow to the south.


Seymour, D. J., 1986, Comment about boundary stone on edge of Buckland Common (Personal Comment). SDV314266.

Seymour is definite that the latin text can only refer to this point. This would give an early date to the cultivation on this part of the common.
