Boundary stone

Summary

Type Marker

     Stone with segmentally rounded top now set in a concrete surround
          Taken from Cadw report: Purpose of stone was probably to redefine the boundary in order to avert disputes over which parish was liable for relieving paupers under the Old Poor Law. The existence of a similar stone at Tavernspite and possibly a lost third one on the Narberth to Prince's Cross road suggests these were put up at the initiative of the Lampeter Velfrey parish guardians. With the formation of the Narberth Poor Law Union under the 1834 Act the stones would have become redundant. See Record No. PEMB009 - Boundary stone at Tavernspite
