Details

BUCKLAND-IN-THE-MOOR SX77 SW 6/41 Direction post at south-east - corner of Stone crossroads

- II

Direction post. Dated 1790. Granite. Roughly shaped stone of oblong section embedded on top of a grass covered embankment by the roadside. Carved inscriptions on each of the broad faces to north-east and south-west, the north-east face bearing the date 1790. Beneath this the inscription is difficult to read, but is possibly NEWTON; the inscription on south-west side may be ASHBURTON. On the north-west edge is carved the letter W, perhaps referring to the adjacent parish of Widecombe. The south-east edge is concealed by the embankment. This is an unusually early type of direction post and one of the few to carry a date. It was re-erected in 1963, having been "formerly built into opposite wall".
