This boundary marker, which is built into a drystone wall on the summit of Harbour Hill, is a cast concrete block measuring 0.3m square in section and rising 0.55m to a flat top with a narrow bevelled edge. On the S face of the stone are the impressed letters 'W' and 'D', standing for War Department, which flank an upward-pointing arrow. Below this is 'BS 57'.
