The London Stones, Upnor
The London Stones, Upnor
The London Stones mark the limit of the charter rights of fishermen.
There are two stones, one considerably taller than the other. The farther from the river is much the older. It is white in colour and is inscribed on the side away from the river with "God preserve the City of London", and on the river face with the date 1204 and the arms of the City. Below are the names of eighteenth century civic dignitaries of the capital, recording their ceremonial visits to the stones in, for example, 1775, 1785, 1789 and 1802. The other two sides of the stone also record visits, but are now almost indecipherable. The modern stone, over twice the height of the older and in brown-grey granite, also records visits on its river face, although these are more modern.
