Locally a group that aims to protect a disused railway from Chichester to Midhurst (Centurian Way) that has been converted into a very popular walking, biking and perambulating route, wish to recreate this tradition to establish rights alonga stretch marked for diversion so that a new housing estate can be built.
This action by the Friends of Centurian way, caused me to consider if this was a bounday on not and if any boundary stones exist.
The area is marked as "West of Chichester" so should be considered outside, with the railway running up the division. It could never have run along an established footpath as that would breach many anicent and modern laws.
Chichester has many boundary stones, the ones marked SO stand for St Olaves around 1765 and a few examples can be found in Whyke Alley by the market behind the Eastgate pub and along the Baffins incorporated into the pillar of a door way .
Others from the 1181 survey, marked strangely 1882 on the stones. There are a few stones surviving as can be seen oin the images below. The one on westgate by Bishop Luffa school is the boundary on the old footpath that ran up the current course of Sherbourne way
