TQ 88 NE,

Old Crowstone


A granite obelisk of about 7ft known as The Crowstone was originally erected on
the Chalkwell foreshore in 1755 to mark the eastern extent of the jurisdiction
by the City of London over shipping in the Thames. It was replaced and re-erected
on its present site to the west of Prittlewell Priory in 1950.
