Can anyone help me with identifying a dressed stone marker that has turned up in a garden in Cambridgeshire, approx 100m S of church in village of Soham?
Its dressed clunch, square in section, with two smooth sides and two rough, engraved with "HT" and "V" on the two sides, in a script that looks 18th/19th century-ish. Its about 12 inches high, and 6 inches in diameter. It must be some sort of marker stone, and we wondered about an early benchmark or something similar? There is nothing on the 1st edition OS maps that would appear to correspond.
I've had a quick scan on the internet and nothing similar leaps out at me, and I am not sure of the meaning of the HT and V. I can provide a picture if anyone wants a closer look.
