Dave Brewer writes: “It is built into the northern wall of Holwell Lawn facing Greator Rocks and about 6ft tall. According to Mr Whitley of Holwell farm, little work has been done on this wall since 1902 when Lord Justice Eve did extensive repair work to it, but of course the uncompleted bondstone may have been there long before that.” The ‘I’ was intended to denote the boundary of Ilsington parish, but the stone here resides well into the parish of Manaton.
