Full description

Baines, C., 04/04/2013, Untitled Source (Personal Comment). SDV351044.

Seven Admiralty boundary stones, originally located along field boundaries to the north-west. The stones were probably moved at the same time as nos 19 and 20, and 28 to 33, when more fields were acquired by the Royal Britannia Naval College. Nos 26 and 27 are possibly still adjacent to the boundary of Park View Cottages.
