Dated 1818. Former boundary stone of Sirhowy Ironworks. Erected during or shortly after an acrimonious dispute, when the leasehold of the Ironworks, held by the Tredegar Iron Company ended, the site unexpectedly purchased by John Harford, co-partner of the Ebbw Vale Ironworks. The Tredegar Iron Company refused the terms of a new lease from Harford, and stripped all moveable plant from the site before the new owners took possession, eventually incurring a fine of £6000. It is not known when the stone was removed to Bedwellty House. A similar stone survives near the Sirhowy Ironworks Site.
Small stone with rounded head, now set flat. Inscription reads: ‘S 1818’, referring to the Sirhowy Works.
Listed as a rare survival of an early C19 industrial boundary stone with unusual history. Important historical association with the local iron industry, group value with Bedwellty House.
