Boundary stone standing on a ruined cairn beside the track. The cairn (now very ruinous) has been a bondmark of the Manor of Buckland for many centuries. In 1593 it was named Culverburrough, a name it retained until 1837 when it was changed to Buiscate Burrow. Later in that year, the boundary stone was set up, along with the others to the south, along the eastern boundary of the Manor (some bear the full inscription: EPB 1837/A/B, others just A/B, for Ashburton/Buckland).
