- II
Boundary stone. Possibly C18. Ham stone pillar, about 350 mm wide at base, tapering to 270 mm, about 300 mm thick and
1,150 mm tall, with rounded top. OS bench mark cut into base of stone, which has now been absorbed by a tree growing
alongside. Marking the current boundary between Bryapton CP and Yeovil Without CP, the stone is, according to local
tradition, the former meeting place of the local hunt, hence its name, which is also given to the district to the
south.
