Full Description

A boundary stone found apparently at the side of a field whilst metal detecting, not in it's original position. A photo showed the stone to have a shallow and flat-bottomed base - no measurements were given. Its main feature was the clearly inscribed lettering of WV on one main face, and the letter X on one side face. The other faces were neither visible nor described. The find spot given is in an area where much has changed due to colliery and railway construction. The stone appears to have been found N of the railway, mid way between the old track and the river. No more information was forthcoming and the current location of the stone is unknown. (1)
