18/11/1983 Boundary stone. Roughly squared granite post standing on the northern edge of the remains of a cairn 9 paces in diameter. It is not situated on a ridge or false crest. The stone is inscribed 'A' (Ashburton) on one side and 'B' (Buckland) on the other side and is one of a series marking the boundary of the parish of Buckland.

The second stone (from Blackslade Ford to Cold East Cross) is a little way off the track and its appearance immediately suggests it is much older (than MDV30607) and the letters are larger and more crudely cut. This ancient bondmark was known as the Crooked Stone in 1613. In 1837 the spot was named Bun Burrow.
