History

A stone probably of early C19 date. Its purpose was very probably to define the boundary in order to avert disputes over which parish was liable for relieving paupers under the old Poor Law. The existence of a similar stone at Tavernspite and possibly a lost third one on the Narberth to Prince's Cross road suggests these stones were put up at the initiative of the Lampeter Velfrey parish guardians. With the formation of the Narberth Poor Law Union under the 1834 Act the stones would have become redundant.

The stone has recently been moved back from its original position for road widening and traffic safety. It is now set in a concrete surround.

Exterior

A stone 1 m high and 0.8 m wide with a segmentally rounded top. Carved indicating hands point left and right. The lettering below the left-pointing hand reads 'Crinow Parish' and below the right-pointing hand 'Lampeter Parish'.

At the top centre an Ordnance Survey bench-mark arrow has been carved, probably c.1860.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a relic of the Old Poor Law, with neatly cut lettering and carving.
