Radcliffe Boundary Stones on Peter Tavy / Whitchurch Parish Bounds
A series of boundary stones on the Peter Tavy / Whitchurch parish boundary can be found near the Tavistock to Merrivale road close to Pork Hill. These stones are believed to relate to the Radcliffes of Warleigh, who were considerable landowners in the area from the late 16th century. The Radcliffes owned Cox Tor farm, Hill town, Collaton, Dennithorne, Godsworthy, Horndon and Longstone. The stones are inscribed with “RB” (or part thereof) with the “R” believed standing for Radcliffe. Source: Dartmoor Boundary Markers by Dave Brewer (second edition, 2002).
