Vale Down Boundary Stones

Twin boundary stones, both old and modern, standing beside the wall on the south side of Vale Down. Strangely, and without good reason, the parish boundary here turns 90 degrees to the north and then 90 degrees to the west, tracing what seems to be an old raised boundary.

Nodden Gate Parking Area

Very limited space. Please park considerately, do not block gates and please do not obstruct the area in which people turn around. Also please bear in mind that the lane up from the Fox and Hounds pub is rough and that it is more suited to 4x4s.
