3/4/1983 Cairn surmounted by boundary stone inscribed A/B on either side. One of a series on Buckland Common marking the parish boundary. Boundary stone looks like a roughly squared granite post.

The third stone (from Blackslade Ford to Cold East Cross) is a considerably taller pillar, is also marked only with the parish letters, but is a much more modern stone. This stands on a very small ruinous cairn. The spot appears to have been named Penny Pie Burrow, with the name virtually unchanged since 1593, being variously spelt Pony Poole, Pennypowls, Penny Poole and Penny Pole Burrough or Burrow through seven boundary reviews.
