Old Jack
Old Jack
In the 1850s the Duke of Somerset decided to erect a number of named boundary stones along Heytor Down to emphasise the extent of his holding. He intermingled his well rounded stones with a couple of already established boundary stones and natural rocks. All received his initials "DS" together with the date 1853 or 1854. The names of the stones took a decidedly royal approach with "Prince Albert", "Victoria", "Prince of Wales" interspersed with the more obscure names "Wm Stone" and "Old Jack".
