  • This is the boundary stone that marked the border between the parishes of Warblington and Idsworth.
  • Boundary Stones are physical markers that identify a land boundary.
  • It is believed to be dated about 1830. The inscription is hard to read now but the letters seem to be W M, which we think stands for Warblington Manor.
  • The Parish of Rowlands Castle was formed in 1932 consisting of Blendworth Parish, Idsworth Parish and parts of five other Parishes.
