Site visit 3rd May 2004. Tall granite pillar in fair condition, inscribed Coombe/intin/Head/Wool/Borough, dating from circa 1822. The B3195 from Newton Abbot to Shaldon is a narrow 6 mile route maintained at one time by the Newton Bushel Turnpike Trust of 1765. The road passes out of town along East Street and as it proceeds up to and beyond the Penn Inn roundabout it crosses a number of parish boundaries that are marked with boundstones placed in circa 1822 as a result of the Turnpike Act of that year.
