Does anyone know anything about the old marker stone (as photo) on Frinton road by the roundabout junction with Kings Parade.

Looks like a marker for a site that existed a long time ago. Just fascinated to know more.

Dear JohnBY

It is not nice to be ignored on here so I am replying even though nothing to report at the moment.  I googled it up but it does not really tell you anything.  I am still searching. 🧐

Found this :

" A boundary marker, border marker, boundary stone, or border stone is a robust physical marker that identifies the start of a land boundary or the change in a boundary, especially a change in direction of a boundary. There are several other types of named border markers, known as pillars, obelisks, and corners."

Hope it helps 😀

You could be right as they were used for various reasons.
